To enhance competitiveness and meet customer expectations of new technologies, utilities and retail suppliers should invest in customer-centric demand side management products, a report from Navigant Research says.
The market for indoor environmental and air quality (IEAQ) technologies used in new construction and retrofit applications is expected to grow from $4.2bn in 2015 to $7.1bn by 2024, according to a Navigant Research report.
To inspect the blades of the more than 270,000 wind turbines operating globally, technicians have traditionally relied on binoculars and field scopes from the ground, or have scaled the turbines with the help of ropes or cables. Today, unmanned aerial vehicles are providing a safer option, with the benefit of higher-resolution imaging. Cumulative global revenue for wind turbine UAV sales and inspection services is expected to reach nearly $6bn by 2024, according to a Navigant Research report.
