Zero-emission mobile gensets rising in energy sector: Report

The global zero-emission transportable genset market is expected to reach US$10bn in 2029, according to a research report by IDTechEx, a global market research firm

The report, Zero Emission Transportable Gensets 2019-2039 provides a rapidly increasing outlook for a new type of electricity generation, with reliable service and cost-effectiveness.

According to the research, zero-emission gensets are set to replace diesel and gas gensets and open up new markets such as fish farm ice making at sea, farm robotics, mobile desalinators and electricity supply for disaster areas.

In the aquaculture sector, zero-emission gensets are seen as an alternative method to power ice making for fish farms in violent seas offshore and prevent the 20 per cent of deaths suffered by getting fuel to an advancing army.

The report has highlighted some major areas including standard zero energy systems, renewable announcements, solar-diesel hybrid business, wave and other water power, triple mode mobile zero-emission gensets, microturbines, fuel cells, and mixed picture for diesel gensets and diesel bans.

Mobile zero-emission gensets empower the business with a lower cost of ownership, which is more versatile than diesel gensets. They are a potential alternative to fossil-fuelled heating, cooling, cooking and propulsion.
