FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- 80% of oil and gas reserves have fallen into the hands of national oil companies. Conventional production has decreased since 2006 and producers are struggling to find replacement reserves that can maintain balance sheets and offset record production. Meanwhile, adoption inertia has begun to give way with the growth of distributed solar, and that wave will continue with the adoption of biomass gasifiers and boilers, and fuel cells - as long as those systems can prove economic feasibility.
Global Information Inc (GII) presents three critical market research reports – covering the global markets for fossil fuel, clean energy and smart grid -- published by our premium market research partner Lux Research.
The Race to Replace Reserves
New cost-efficient technologies are needed to ensure that production keeps pace with global demand and that reserves are secure for future generations. Producers have shifted their focus to unconventional reserves and improving recovery rates in order to avoid a world energy crisis.
This report analyzes the needs of this market and details sector trends and the future of the global market for unconventional oil and gas.

Reaping Profits from Biomass, Solar, and Fuel Cell On-Site Generation
The economics of biomass, solar and fuel cell will be aided by rising energy prices and incentives to avoid carbon dioxide emissions, but the most impactful factor - system cost reduction - is in the hands of technology suppliers and their partners. According to the report, solar and biomass gasification will lead the new wave of on-site technologies.
As emerging technologies increase in scale and maturity, and Fortune 500 companies commit to more sustainable operations, diesel generators' vice-like grip on the building on-site generation market is loosening.

Cloudy with a Chance of Energy: Evaluating Technologies to Manage Grid Intermittency
At current natural gas prices, electricity can be generated by natural gas power plants cheaper than it can be stored and shifted by any grid storage technology. However, unbridled natural gas use with 30% renewables and no storage will unavoidably result in the curtailment of renewably generated electricity.
Utilities have long known that renewables will impact the grid, but have yet to define and quantify the impact in any usable way. This report determines the optimal mix of busload and flexible generation in combination with the required emerging technologies to integrate wind and solar generation into the grid by more than 30%.
