SBIR Consultant – Market Analysis: There are many issues of importance to be stressed in writing a competitive SBIR proposal. One of these is market analysis: urgent need for your innovation, your competition, showstopper issues, cost, and policy/legal impediments. The blog below is an example of a snapshot market analysis where the US renewable energy maket has considerable room to grow. Perhaps more Government support is needed to offset fossil fuel influence on Congress to level the playing field for renewable technologies. Does your innovation face this type of problem?
The following graph is a plot of U.S. renewable energy production (See p. 27) starting in 2001 through 2013. The vertical axis is the fraction of renewable energy production for a given year, where years are delineated along the horizontal axis. U.S. renewable energy sources include biomass, geothermal, solar, wind and hydropower. Germany has a similar set of renewable energy categories.
Suppose one assumes U.S. progress towards greater levels of renewable energy production will continue at the same rate that prevailed from 2001 to 2013. Then by extrapolating this straight-line plot, U.S. renewable energy production in 2046 will be equal to what Germany has now!Tags: German Renewable Energy, Renewable Energy, Renewable Energy Production, US Renewable Energy
