  • GBI Research

“Power Market in the Americas to 2020: Renewable Energy and Growing Demand Entails Efficient Infrastructure” provides an in-depth analysis of the power market of selected American countries (the US, Chile, Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Peru and Venezuela). The research analyzes their regulatory framework and the infrastructure of their power sectors. It provides a detailed forecast of the installed capacity by thermal, hydro, renewable (solar PV, biomass, wind etc.) and nuclear sources in each of the nine countries up to 2020. The report, coupled with elaborate information on active and upcoming power plants in the countries, provides a comprehensive understanding of the nine American power markets.

This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by a team of industry experts.

The US emerged as the largest power market by installed capacity among the American countries with a share of 74.8% in the total installed capacity in 2009, followed by Canada. With an upturn in the global economy expected from 2010, American power market is expected to grow moderately READ MORE >

"Power Market in the Americas to 2020 – Renewable Energy and Growing Demand Entails Efficient Infrastructure" analyzes the power market in the American countries. With the growing economy, there has been an increasing demand for power and hence has resulted in plans for the boost in power generation. Though oil and gas has been the primary source of power in this region, but renewable energy is also making strong in-roads in most of the countries in the region

US and Canada, Largest Power Markets by Installed Capacity in the Americas

In 2009, the US was the largest power market by installed capacity among the American countries with a share of 74.8% of the total installed capacity. Canada was the second largest market with a share of 8.7% of the total installed capacity. It was followed by Brazil and the Mexico with shares of 7% and 3.4%, respectively, of the total installed capacity. Argentina had a share of 1.9% of the total installed capacity and is the fifth largest country by installed capacity among the American countries.

Economic Growth in Americas will lead to Increased Generation and Consumption of Electricity

Most countries in the Americas will see a growth in electricity consumption in the next decade. An increase in electricity consumption will require increased generation. Consumption in the region increased during the period 2000-2007 due to industrialization, population growth and extreme weather conditions. In 2008-2009, the total consumption of the Americas declined due to the economic downturn. Since the industrial sector, which consumes the highest percentage of electricity, was negatively affected by the global economic downturn, there was an overall decline in total power consumption during this period. The region’s electricity consumption is expected to increase moderately during the forecast period 2010-2020 due to increasing economic growth and the resulting increase in electricity demand.
