Frost & Sullivan: Major Challenges Ahead for the Power Markets

In a Web Conference Two Energy Experts Will Explain Where the Opportunities Are

LONDON--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - The power markets in Europe and North America are in a post-crisis lull, but the market fundamentals remain strong, and now is the time for companies to be taking strategic decisions in order to be well positioned for the upturn. Demand for large centralised power plants may be low, but there are opportunities in smart energy, biomass, renewables and micro-generation to name a few. The often neglected services business also offers great potential.

In the developing economies, the power markets are booming; provision of electricity is now ranked along with provision of clean water and health and education services as a key barometer of development. Demand for all types of power equipment remains high, but which markets offer the best opportunities?

Frost & Sullivan will be presenting an overview of power & energy developments in a web conference, taking place on Wednesday, 6th April at 2 pm BST. Two Frost & Sullivan key power markets experts, Industry Director Harald Thaler and Senior Consultant Jonathan Robinson will offer insights into the key trends and opportunities for the next decade.

Jonathan Robinson says: "Approximately 1.5 billion people globally without any access to electricity. At the same time, as governments scramble to meet their demand for power, the world needs to minimise the growth in carbon emissions, and in the wake of the Japanese earthquake, questions are being asked of nuclear power."

Harald Thaler adds: "There are major challenges ahead for the power & energy sector, but these create opportunities for players that can strategically position themselves to exploit them."
