Serving the Alternative Energy Industry

Understanding trends, challenges and opportunities

Few industries impact global economic livelihood, societal functioning and quality of life as significantly as the energy industry. Few industries face as many challenges. A number of daunting factors are again leading many inside and outside the energy industry to embrace alternative energy as a solution – or, perhaps, more accurately, a critical piece of the solution.

Alternative energy sources are slowly making inroads in our national energy mix, and that progress is likely to continue. It’s not a matter of whether the U.S. renewable energy market will grow – it’s how fast and by how much. A sampling of trends and challenges affecting U.S. alternative energy companies includes:

  • Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) boom in alternative energy sector
  • Technology evolution
  • Regulatory uncertainty
  • Infrastructure bottlenecks
  • Emissions allowances, renewable energy credits and trading
