NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Biogas to Energy (Analyst version) - The World Market for Biogas Plants 2012/2013
The international biogas boom will continue in the years to come. The worldwide installed capacity will increase between 2012 and 2016 from 4,700 MWel to about 7,400 MWel – which is a growth of about 60 per cent in only five years. We furthermore expect the number of plants to increase from 9,700 to 13,500 plants.
The main reason for this growth is the support of renewable energy that is increasing throughout the world. More and more countries create the necessary framework conditions for a fast growth of the biogas industry. Europe will remain the world's most dynamic market.
This study is the third edition of the biogas plant market analysis by ecoprog GmbH and the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT. Amongst other actors, energy agencies, public authorities and associations as well as operators and plant manufacturers have been involved in this analysis.
This detailed investigation and current analysis of numbers, facts, estimations and trends of the worldwide market for biogas plants is of interest for producers, suppliers, operators, disposal companies, associations, research institutes and consulters.
The analyst version of the market study "Biogas to Energy 2012/2013" includes:
- A detailed analysis of the essential political, economic, managerial and technical trends for constructing and operating biogas plants.
- A concrete description of the current and future market volumes by countries, up to and including 2016, based on a transparent and comprehensible methodology.
- A project list for each country with new construction projects and projects that are planned or currently discussed.
- A description and analysis of the most important operators and manufacturers of biogas plants.

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

I’m going to cry tonight, long and hard. I’ll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo’s headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
