Energy

Energy markets are commodities markets that deal specifically with the trade and supply of energy. Energy market may refer to an electricity market, but can also refer to other sources of energy. Recent years have seen investment growth in solar and wind and other renewable energy markets. Typically energy development requires government creation of an energy policy that encourages the development of a competitive energy industry.

Sectors of the Energy market are Energy storage, coal and clean coal, oil and gas, onshore and offshore wind energy, geothermal, transportation, power generation, transmission, distribution, and more. Manufacturing and construction, chemicals and materials, and other major markets intersect the energy market. Energy industry markets have seen strong growth particularly in solar and wind. Electric automobiles, smart grid advances, communications technologies, shale, enhanced oil recovery are all viewed as shifting, however. Where government backing is going is yet to be revealed in country policies being developed. Read more...
