Traditionally, rechargeable batteries have been used as energy dense products and the other devices based on capacitors have been used as power dense products. There are more-power-dense versions of the favourite rechargeable batteries - lithium-ion with 70% or so of the rechargeable battery market in 2023. Unfortunately, power dense rechargeable batteries surrender a lot of energy density. It is therefore helpful that more and more energy dense supercapacitors and variants are becoming available, some even matching lead acid batteries and yet retaining excellent power density. This convergence of properties has led to the widespread combination of the two in parallel, particularly in power applications. Battery/supercapacitor combinations approach the performance of an ideal...

Underground Hydro Power Plant Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
High capital constraints in the large hydropower market coupled with major land & environmental constraints are reasons that have given a boost to the underground hydropower plant market. Usually hydroelectric power projects developed on medium-to-large scale for serving an industrial plant or small communities are called underground hydro projects. Although the generating capacity that can be termed as the upper limit for an underground hydro project is not clearly outlined, it may range from 30MW to 6000MW. Such projects may be either grid connected or stand alone depending on the...
Direct-To-Home (DTH) Satellite TV Services Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Direct-To-Home (DTH) satellite television services have remarkably changed the mass electronic communication industry. DTH service provides reliable signals, high-definition video clarity, digital sound quality and essential signal security. It provides consumers with the facility to select the channels based on their preference and thus helping in cutting down on expenses. The broadcasters can also find out the exact number of viewers for a specific channel (TRP) to estimate its popularity. C-band and Ku-band are the two modes of DTH signal transmission. Increasing importance...
Antimicrobial Plastics Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Plastics play a major role in our lives today and are found abundantly in our everyday lives. They find applications across a host of industries including medicines, construction, appliances, automotives, and in other industries. However, repeated use of plastics over a substantial period is raising a concern over their hygiene. Overuse of plastic bottles to store water results in leaking of chemicals into the water. Storing food in plastic containers promotes the growth of harmful bacteria. Contamination problems are increasing with escalating cases of pathogenic diseases. Use of...

Private Schools Have Higher Male Teaching Staff Than State Schools: Report
Oct 22, 2014
Private and state education has always been a matter of debate across the UK. A recent study has shown that when it comes to teaching employment options, the difference between state-run and private education in terms of gender balance is absolutely clear. A report by the Independent Schools Council (ISC) shows that while women dominate both the education medium, the number of...
Abbots First Australian Renewable Energy Deal Rejected
Oct 22, 2014
The Abbot government’s initial deal for a renewable energy plan has been immediately rejected by the clean energy industry and Labor. The negotiations are about a bipartisan agreement regarding the future of the Australian renewable energy target. The Labor party rejected the first plan as being a job-killer before it was even announced. The plan, they said, would protect solar...
Chemical Production in Europe Flatlines in First Seven Months of 2014
Oct 21, 2014
The recently published report by European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic) shows overall chemical production in Europe has flatlined in first seven months of this year. Though the initial four months showed a positive trend, the production volumes dropped in July 2014 and in the following months as well. The contraction in output in the three consecutive months has nullified the upward trend...
