FARMINGTON, Conn., June 21, 2012 /PR Newswire/ --

For most people, the term 'Clean Energy': brings to mind images of wind turbines and solar photovoltaic panels, but these represent just a small portion of available clean energy technologies. Global Information is pleased to provide two excellent new reports that focus on lesser-known but high-potential sources of environment-friendly power: Biogas and Biopellets. Premium market research reports like these help businesses stay on the cutting edge with the best forecasts, research, and analyses.

Renewable Biogas - Methane Recovery and Utilization in Landfills and Anaerobic Digesters: Municipal Solid Waste, Agricultural, Industrial and Wastewater Market Analysis and Forecasts

Biogas is a resource captured as a byproduct of municipal solid waste processing (MSW), as well as agriculture, industrial, and sewage treatment.  Growing demand for such waste treatment processes creates similar growing opportunity to develop this source of energy. The use of bio-digesters to process manure and crop residues in Germany, for example, has demonstrated the potential for rapid deployment of biogas capture on a distributed basis.

The global biogas industry still faces significant barriers, however, as lower natural gas prices, challenging economics, and project-to-project variability frustrate efforts to achieve economies of scale. As of 2012, biogas production accounted for only a fraction of natural gas production with bio-digester deployments concentrated primarily in Germany and landfill gas recovery confined mostly to advanced economies throughout North America and Europe.

Pike Research's new Renewable Biogas Market Analysis and Forecast offers worldwide revenue and capacity forecasts for raw biogas and RNG production. This report also looks at demand drivers, business models, policy factors, and technology issues.

Biopellet Energy Market - Global Market Size, Average Price, Competitive Analysis and Key Country Analysis to 2020

Biopellets are an important technology for encouraging the utilization of biomass in heat and power generation. Biopellets and wood pellet burners have established their place in residential heating systems across Europe, driven by high fuel and energy prices more than by environmental concerns, and now the power generation industry in general is starting to take notice of the potential of this carbon-neutral energy source.

According to new Biopellet Energy Market research, production of pellets has doubled in the last four years, with Canada – and its developed forestry industry – being the largest producer. Consumption remains concentrated in Europe, with the residential sector accounting for the bulk of this, but market conditions can shift rapidly as the industry matures.

This report provides historical and forecast analysis of the global biopellet production, average prices and market size, with regional breakdown for North America, Latin and Central America, Europe and Asia-Pacific and individual country demographics for the US, Canada, Brazil, Germany, Sweden , Austria, and Japan.
