The renewable energy industry remains one of the most dynamic, fast-changing, and transformative sectors of the global economy. Technology improvements, cost declines, and the catalytic influence of new financing structures, have turned the sector into a driver of economic growth – both in the United States and around the world. In fact, because policy uncertainty in the U.S. domestic market has restricted growth at home, export markets offer many companies the important opportunity for sales abroad. This Top Markets Report provides the commentary on key trends, areas of opportunity, and important challenges that exporters need to compete effectively in foreign markets. It offers both near-term and medium-term projections, as well as eight country case studies with more in-depth information.
This report is part of the Top Markets Series. Each report ranks future export opportunities within a particular industry based on a sector-specific methodology.
