Security And Supply For US Electric Power Infrastructure Back In The Spotlight After Recent Storms Highlight Weaknesses In The Grid
FARMINGTON, Conn., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- After the October 2011 nor'easter created long-lasting power outages for nearly 2 million people, and the more recent mid-Atlantic/Midwest derecho knocked out power for nearly twice as many residents, the United States' power infrastructure is once again a hot topic in the news. These storms serve as reminders of both the extreme fragility of the power grid, and of the critical importance of our national power infrastructure to our economy and daily lives.
As governments around the globe seek to improve the infrastructure of their power grids, companies competing for their business will need to know what's around the corner if they are to have any chance of succeeding. With premium market research from the world's leading publishers, Global Information Inc will help these organizations stay on the cutting edge with the best forecasts, research, and analyses.
The Electric Power Infrastructure Security Market 2012-2022
Growth within the electric power infrastructure security market is being stimulated by a combination of aging infrastructure, smart grid adoption, rising compliance, and regulations, according to new research from Visiongain. With the critical role electric utilities play in the day-to-day running of global economies, the grid is increasingly a target for criminal and terrorist exploitation. This report forecasts strong growth in the electric power infrastructure security market as a number of governments and electric power utility companies rush to protect utility infrastructure networks (critical infrastructure) to help ensure national economic security. This will create tremendous opportunity within the global gas utility infrastructure market, for example, which will reach $3.7 billion in 2012.
China, India, and Brazil will drive growth as new power plants and an increasing amount of transmission infrastructure is developed, but the US and major European countries will remain central to capital expenditure on electric power infrastructure security, as these economies continue to invest maintaining and upgrading their power grids. Growth in other regional markets is expected to increase steadily as threats to electric infrastructure and awareness of security issues grows.

High Voltage Switchgear for AC Transmission Systems
The global high voltage switchgear market is forecast to grow significantly 2012 to 2020, according to new research from GlobalData. The market will grow 7.8% CAGR annually between 2012 and 2020, as demand for high voltage switchgear devices is driven upward by huge investments in transmission networks.
Total transmission line length across the globe is expected to grow at a 2.3% CAGR over this time period, which will spark investment in high voltage switchgear devices. Moreover, in many countries the transmission infrastructure has reached the end of its operational life and utilities are striving to enhance the reliability of the network by upgrading or replacing the aged devices. The high voltage switchgear market is expected to get a boost in response to the necessity for expanding and upgrading the transmission system.
This new report lists drivers and restraints, and analyzes global high voltage switchgear sales volume, market value and average price. The report covers eight key countries for the high voltage switchgear market and provides sales volume analysis, market value forecasts, average pricing and regulations at the country level.

Energy Efficiency Retrofits for Commercial and Public Buildings
Consumers and governments continue to drive demand for innovative new products to meet the needs of owners of older buildings who wish to achieve energy savings through the use of building upgrades. This demand is met with a host of increasingly efficient products from suppliers of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, lighting, windows, insulation, control software, and countless other products. Industry participants warn that to achieve a successful retrofit, both in terms of cost and comfort, each building must be addressed as a unique situation. Trying to apply a one-size-fits-all solution across multiple structures is a common pitfall of the industry that results in less energy savings and unhappy building occupants.
New market research examines the global market for energy efficiency retrofits in commercial and public buildings, including analysis and forecasts for eight different building types as well as eight product and service categories. The report covers key industry drivers by world region including regulatory and policy factors as well as market-based factors and economic considerations. More than 50 industry players are profiled in depth and energy efficiency retrofit revenue forecasts, segmented by world region and key countries, extend through 2020.
