LONDON, July 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Visiongain's latest energy report, The Solar Power Photovoltaic (PV) Market 2011-2021, takes a comprehensive look into this modern industry. Visiongain calculated that expenditure on photovoltaic output in 2011 will reach $50.62bn. Capital expenditure on solar power photovoltaic will see unprecedented growth over the forecast period as emerging market such as China invest heavily on PV technologies.
The future for photovoltaic solar power generation is brighter than ever before as the costs of production is falling and new power technologies are enabling companies to roll out photovoltaic (PV) panels on a larger scale, with greater efficiency. Although in many regions of the globe consumers still require financial support from governments to buy PV panels, the cost of electricity from PV panels is expected to fall continually over the years to come, and eventually be as competitive as conventional processes of electricity generation. In remote locations unconnected to the grid, solar photovoltaic power is already an effective replacement for grid connections. In countries like Australia and the United States long distances and few distribution points make centralised power relatively expensive. The use of solar power photovoltaic along with storage systems is becoming an alternative option to a direct grid connection.
Energy companies and governments around the world will invest large sums of money in solar power photovoltaic infrastructure over the coming years. The replacement of old centralised and often carbon-intensive infrastructure is required as well as the satisfaction of a rapidly growing demand for electricity. Many governments around the globe still offer very generous feed-in tariff rates to support the fledgling photovoltaic industry. Governments are also spending large sums of money directly, supporting utility scale photovoltaic solar farms.
Electricity prices are soaring as a result of high commodity prices and energy companies are faced with difficult investment decisions with regard to sourcing their future electricity supply. Some energy companies are favouring solar power as a solution because of its low maintenance cost and the financial incentives provided by the government.
This The Solar Power Photovoltaic (PV) Market 2011-2021 report includes; quantified forecasts for the global and national markets, offering insight into why companies are heavily investing in photovoltaic technology and which regions will experience the fastest and slowest growth from 2011-2021. This report outlines a study of drivers, restraints and a SWOT analysis underpinned by two interviews with industry experts. The leading active companies in the sector are listed in the report. This compilation of valuable information and market data creates a truly unique report only available from visiongain.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate. And the management is like herding cats (overseeing capacity, rebuilds, migrations, and degraded performance).

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
