Energy trends to watch in 2013

Commercial energy efficiency retrofits:
As we all adjust to a world of higher energy costs, the business case is stronger for projects that deliver ongoing savings in energy consumption, and there is a growing understanding that individual businesses and society as a whole can save money by investing in technology today.

Turning waste into power:
New technologies are emerging that create value out of what some of us deem to be waste. A great example is the practice of turning municipal waste into gas that can be used as energy. A number of companies in the USA are actively pushing marketing these solutions today.

Grid energy storage:
Energy storage technology continues to attract R&D spend and investment. We will continue to hear about more energy storage projects that are adjacent to renewable energy installations, which should have the effect of balancing loads.
