The energy sector is one of the key market research segments for BDB since 1989, there has been a continuous effort to build market research capability for the renewable energy sector. We have had the privilege of contributing to the growth in Solar, Wind, Biomass, Hydro Electric power and Green Hydrogen by carrying out customised primary market research for our clients from India and International markets.

BDB India has conducted a market analysis for the equipment, systems, components and services required to set up renewable energy power plants and evacuation of power from windmills, solar power plants and plants based on other renewable sources. Some of the prominent studies include analysis of turbines, valves and automation for micro hydel projects, turbines, blades, gearboxes, or windmills and automation products & services of power evacuation from windmills to the grid, solar inverters, solar panel cleaning systems, solar-based lantern, power storage systems, etc. In the bio-mass areas, several studies have been conducted to establish the feasibility of setting up small power plants using bio-waste, animal waste, etc. as sources of fuel.

BDB is also very well aligned with the green hydrogen ecosystem as this segment provides opportunities for several suppliers of mechanical and electronic products and equipment. Along with global trends, India is going to focus on ESG more rigorously, and the usage of renewable energy for producing green hydrogen shall be a norm for the future.

BDB conducts primary market research in this sector including demand estimation & demand projection, analysis of technology evolutions, feasibility studies, opportunity assessment of repair, maintenance and overhauling, analysis of spare parts and consumables demand, and customer journey mapping. These studies are conducted by interviewing respondents like The Head of Operations, maintenance, procurement and general management. Intensive discussion with relevant industry associations, Government bodies and ministries like MNRE is also part of the analysis related to this sector.
