Wind Energy currently accounts for 3% of the world's electricity supply with forecasts to expand to 19% by 2030. It is the world’s fastest growing energy source and a vital part of mankind’s response to global warming and the security of future energy supplies.
The market has changed over the last 15 years moving away from a high volume of small independent installations to large scale developments created by Independent Power Providers. Whilst the market has been more prevalent within established continents like North America and Europe, China currently leads the market followed by the USA and Germany.
Wind Energy is a growth sector within Walter Hewitt with current clients spread across Manufacturing, Development, Installation and maintenance of Wind Turbines/Farms across the world.
Solar Energy recently passed 1% of Global Electricity supply and like Wind Energy has seen a strong surge in growth across China. The market has faced issues with Storage and a reduction in Government Subsidies in Europe but has seen strong growth in the USA recently over taking Japan.
As storage issues are resolved Solar should resume the strong growth it has seen in the past as a feasible clean energy source for both large Independent Power Providers and the independent consumer with rooftop installations.
Walter Hewitt has a steady client base in both Manufacturers and Developers and see Solar as an important part of their future growth.
Bioenergy is the single largest renewable energy source today, providing 10% of world primary energy supply.
Bioenergy is energy derived from biomass which includes biological material such as animals and plants, wood, waste, (hydrogen) gas, and alcohol fuels. Fundamentally bioenergy is the exploitation of solar energy that has been bound up in biomass during the process of photosynthesis.
The deployment of advanced biomass cook stoves, clean fuels and additional off-grid biomass electricity supply in developing countries are key measures to improve the current situation and achieve universal access to clean energy facilities by 2030.
Walter Hewitt provides a range of services to clients that operate across the gathering, processing and supplying of biofuels.
