ELFF Study Examines EF Impacts of Disruption in Energy Sector

January 28, 2019, 07:25 AM

Disruption in the energy sector presents significant opportunities for investors, financiers, equipment vendors and solution providers, according to a new study, The Impact of New Energy Production Technologies on Equipment Finance - Opportunities and Challenges Shaping the Future of the Finance Industry, released by the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation.

The in-depth study, commissioned by the Foundation, was prepared by Navigant Research, a market research and advisory team renowned in the field of clean, intelligent, mobile and distributed energy. The study forecasts across-the-board growth in energy sectors related to a shift in emphasis from centralized fossil power generation to renewable energy.

The study reveals that massive disruption across the entire energy value chain will affect a broad set of stakeholders during the next 5 to 15 years. To meet the challenges and harness opportunities this disruption poses, the study presents critical intelligence, including market size; finance and lease structures; industry trends and drivers; case studies; and risk factors from a lendor and lessor perspective for the following key energy sectors: 

  • Utility-scale solar PV
  • Utility-scale wind
  • Utility-scale energy storage
  • Intelligent buildings
  • Distributed energy resources (DER)

“This study is an invaluable resource for new business opportunities, as well as an alert for industry incumbents to the dramatic disruption they will be facing,” said Thomas Ware, Foundation Research Committee Chair and Senior Vice President, Analytics and Product Development, PayNet, Inc. “We believe the insights it provides will enable energy sector participants to develop new ways to meet changing customer needs.”
