Natural Gas Prices Forecast: Long Term 2017 to 2030 | Data and Charts

Autumn and winter are traditionally characterized by the growth in energy consumption and, thus, in prices for energy products. Still, natural gas prices in the US, Europe, and Japan showed different dynamics in November. Thus, the spot price of natural gas at Henry Hub, US, fell by 15.2% in November compared to the previous month. This decline - which was the sharpest monthly drop since December of 2014 - interrupted a period of steady growth lasting from April. On the contrary, in Europe, average import border price of natural gas surged by 14.4% - the most dramatic monthly increase over the last 17 years. What for the import price of...

Crude Oil Price Forecast: 2017, 2018 and Long Term to 2030

Brent crude oil price will average at $52.4 per barrel in 2017 and increase to $54.1 per barrel in 2018 according to the most recent forecast from the U.S. Energy Information Administration's Short-Term Energy Outlook released monthly.

After a modest growth in 2018 though, the nominal price of Brent crude will increase to $53.5 a barrel by 2020, as per IMF's Primary Commodity...

Solar Energy Review: United States and Global Perspectives

Contemporary society has become energy-hungry. At the same time, people realize that fossil fuels are finite and the earth fragile, meaning that the day will come - some say it's long past - when alternative energy sources will be a need, not a luxury. Some favor heavy investment in and widespread accessibility of nature-friendly solar energy, a relatively inexpensive option already and certainly endless in supply. A key issue is storage and transmission to address seasonal variation - during winter months the capacity factor averages 15% lower - and weather patterns. In 2016, the United States ranked third globally in solar energy...

Coal Prices Forecast: Long Term 2017 to 2030 | Data and Charts

2016 was an exceptional year for coal prices. The period of decline which began in 2011, was interrupted by the rapid growth. Coal prices grew by 7-10 percent in November continuing a 24-29 percent growth in October. Since January, when the price of coal reached a 10-year low, coal prices have rebounded by about 100 percent. This situation is attributable to several factors. First, it is the consequence of an implemented policy in China which aimed at reducing harmful emissions. China is the largest coal consumer and coal producer at the same time. The reduction in own-grown production led to the increase in coal imports. Second, not only...
