As the subsidies that have supported the solar industry for years come into question or disappear altogether, the industry is looking around for new business models.  One possible direction for solar is towards building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), where the cost model is superior to regular PV.  BIPV holds out the hope that the PV industry can flourish with fewer subsidies.

As things turn out, this opportunity for the PV, will also be a growing opportunity for the encapsulation business too.  Flexibility is often required in BIPV and this means that manufacturers of BIPV often have an immediate need for an effective flexible PV encapsulation system.  In addition, as monolithic integration becomes more common, specialist encapsulation systems are required to protect the relatively delicate CIGS, OPV and DSC absorber materials that are commonly used in such products.

This report identifies and quantifies the emerging market for encapsulation systems and materials in the BIPV market.  It investigates both how the leading suppliers of encapsulation products are viewing BIPV as a market for their products and the current and future demand for encapsulation from the BIPV industry itself.  This NanoMarkets report includes a granular eight-year forecast of the BIPV encapsulation markets and assessments of the leading product/market strategies being adopted in this business.

Waste to Diesel Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Waste to diesel is a relatively new concept and an unconventional source of energy. In this process, diesel is produced from municipal waste, plastic waste, and oil and fat waste. Our planet is suffocated by waste, and waste management is a costly affair, without any scope of a return on investment. Our blue planet is also facing troubles with depleting fossil fuel reserves. Waste to diesel is a concept that provides relief from both these modern urban problems by churning out automotive usable diesel from urban waste. This is a highly lucrative market which started not too long ago...
