The global green power market size was estimated at US$ 47.41 in 2021 and it is expected to surpass around US$ 126.7 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a CAGR of 11.54 from 2022 to 2030.
When electricity is produced with the help of solar, wind, geothermal, bio gas, eligible biomass or hydroelectric sources it is called as green power. Green power is important as it replaces the fossil fuels with environment friendly alternatives that help in reducing the negative effects. The energy produced can be called green which does not cause pollution and not all the sources of renewable energy are green. Green resources help in avoiding the drilling and mining operations that damage the ecosystem. The most common forms of green power are solar power, wind power, hydropower, geothermal energy, biomass, and biofuels. If the entire lifecycle of the green energy sources is taken into account, they release a very less amount of greenhouse gases as compared to the fossil fuels. The sources of green power can naturally replenish themselves compared to natural gas or coal, which takes millions of years to replenish.
The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world in many ways. It is compelled everyone to think about the environment. Just like all the other industries, the global green power market has also been indirectly affected by the pandemic. There was a positive effect on the global green power market due to the pandemic. Many nations are deciding to come together and protect the earth.

Green power represents a low-cost solution for the energy needs across the world. The accessibility of green energy and low cost makes it a better option for developing nations. Depending upon the region's geography, green energy has the capacity to replace the fossil fuels in the future. The green energy is a clean source of energy. It is not just good for the planet but it is also good for the health of the people and animals as they have clean air for breathing. Green power is a stable energy power which may not have a lot of price fluctuations due to the geopolitical crisis or any supply chain disruptions. In order to meet the target of net zero emissions, many jobs are created worldwide in this sector.
As the energy produced by the green sources is locally produced and it does not involve any centralized source so it happens to be more flexible. By bringing together various green energy sources and with advancements that are being made with regards to production and development of these resources, the needs of the future generations could be met by green sources and one could believe that the fossil fuels could be replaced. Green power is a zero carbon footprint option which is environment and future friendly.
The green power market can be divided into wind power, hydropower, bio energy, geothermal energy and solar energy. During the forecast period, the hydropower segment is expected to dominate the green power market. In the process of generating electricity, with the help of the hydropower the fast running water, the falling water is used. Followed by the hydropower segment, the solar Energy segment is also expected to grow during the forecast. These projects are expected to grow rapidly due to the efficiency that it provides. Solar modules are cost effective and they are growing rapidly.
On the basis of application, the market is divided into heating, transportation and electricity generation. The application of green power and electricity generation is done in transportation by using minimum natural and limited resources like the fossil fuels. Segments include solar heating, biofuels, geothermal heating, heat pumps and heat exchangers. Many countries are expected to consume more energy from the heating application as compared to that of the electrical power. The heating transportation segment helps in diversified urban transportation which is convenient, efficient, causes less pollution and it is safe.
The transport segment is expected to grow during the forecast. There are installations of many renewable energy sources due to the various government initiatives across the world. But I put industrialization and organization is a key driver for this market.
