Alternative and Renewable Energy

Industry Overview:

Consumers, governments and society in general are pushing for cleaner, smarter ways to generate electricity, to heat water and spaces, to fuel vehicles and to provide effective rural (off-grid) energy service. There are so many opportunities in this growing field that it’s tempting to sing an old rock song, “The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades.”

The benefits are obvious to many countries, whether they are developing nations or established entities like the European Union, which wants 20 percent of its electricity to come via alternative and renewable sources by 2020. In addition to environmental and financial benefits, these sources can provide energy security and reduce vulnerability to political instability and natural disasters. But major technological accomplishments are needed to make these sources more feasible.

Ropella’s vast network of high performers in technology, science, IT and related fields can quickly find the personnel with the requisite skills and knowledge, as well as the ability to communicate well with communities concerned about possible downsides.
