 This is the latest in NanoMarkets’ ongoing series of industry analysis reports on silver inks and pastes.  In this report we analyze how the changes within the applications for silver inks and pastes have impacted the business and what this means over the coming years. 
   
 On the positive side, the solar panel industry is reviving and is much more oriented toward crystalline silicon (c-Si) panels than before the great solar crash.  This is good news for the silver pastes business, because c-Si panels are major consumes of silver.  Silver inks and pastes suppliers also have some reason to be hopeful about the likelihood of large OLED lighting and displays panels finally being commercialized, since silver undoubtedly has a role to play in OLED electrodes....

Gas Turbine Electrical Power Generation Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
The use of gas turbines for generating electricity is a technology dating back many years. These turbines are a kind of internal combustion (IC) engine where an air fuel mixture is burnt to generate hot gases. The hot gases are then used to rotate this turbine and in turn generate electricity. Such turbines are able to combust a large variety of fuels like natural gas, fuel oil and other synthetic oils. Power generation through gas turbines still remains one of the cleanest forms of energy, with very low levels of emission.  The high quality of exhaust heat from such turbines...
