Power Generator Database and Market Intelligence Edition 1, 2012
This NRG Expert product provides a by country/fuel overview of global generating capacity, its evolution and power forecasts. Global generating capacity rose from approximately 134 GW in 1938, to 213 GW in 1950 after the Second World War, and then to 5,082 GW in 2010. Although the figures were small compared with today, the years of WW 2 and the following period, from 1938 to 1950 were a time of enormous change in the electrical sector in which the seeds of today’s industry were sown. There was heavy destruction to the industry in Europe and Japan in the first half of the 1940s, while in the USA capacity grew from 37.6 GW in 1938 to 50.1 GW in 1945. In the years after the war reconstruction commenced, with global capacity growing to 217 GW by 1950. Global capacity is forecast to reach 7,390 GW in 2020.

Global Guide to Natural Gas Utilities Edition 1, 2012
This new NRG Expert Natural Gas Utilities Report is a guide providing a fully comprehensive global analysis for the Natural Gas Industry. This report includes; a description of the different types of natural gas and uses, the global natural gas situation including reserves, market, trade and the gas exporting countries forum, coverage of the natural gas market at the regional level, in depth reporting of the economic situation and natural gas market including natural gas production, transportation, distribution and generation of electricity amongst others for 116 countries worldwide. Carbon reduction commitments and low gas prices relative to other fossil fuels have made natural gas more attractive for power generation and transportation. Overall consumption of natural gas has been growing worldwide. In emerging economies such as China and India domestic supply has not been able to meet growth in demand. More countries are importing natural gas. Increasingly this natural gas is being transported over longer distances. Thus, the transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has been outpacing growth in the trade of natural gas via pipelines, which is more expensive over longer distance.
