US Consumer Support For Clean Energy At Highest Level Since 2010

US Consumer Support For Clean Energy At Highest Level Since 2010 | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Consumer attitudes toward clean energy technologies in America rebounded strongly in 2013 to reach their highest levels since 2010, countering several years of declines in favorability ratings between 2009-2012.

This good news comes from Navigant Research’s 2013 Energy and Environment Consumer Survey, and indicates clean tech may finally be established as a preferred option for consumers despite high-profile conservative attacks.

Overall support for clean energy swung from 2012’s low of 44% to a 51% average favorability in 2013. In fact, out of ten technologies ranging from clean energy to clean transportation to energy efficiency, only one – nuclear power – declined in popularity over the past year.

Global Businesses That Capitalize on Consumer Behavior Changes Will Thrive

Via janlgordon
Stephane Bilodeau's insight:

Accenture research shows that global businesses that capitalize on consumer behavior changes can achieve greater growth.


A growing opportunity 

By aggregating estimates of market size for industries and sectors associated with behavior change, the research indicates a growth opportunity of US$2.4 trillion over the four-year period from 2012 to 2016.

This article and infographic is based on research from Accenture - They have found striking differences between fast and slow-growing companies. Whether you're a global business or a national brand, there is something in here for everyone.


Here is what the report covers:


**Draws on research from four sources:

**a global consumer behavior survey (10,000 online consumers),

a **global executive survey (600 business executives),

**industry-growth leader analysis of the world's top 3,000 listed companies by market capitalization and macroeconomic analysis with Oxford Economics.

Here are a few highlights that caught my attention:

**See opportunity in consumer behavior change

**Consumer behavior-driven markets are expected to grow at three and a half times the rate of emerging economies and times the rate of developed economies between now and 2016

**One of the key insights that Accenture brings as a result of some of its latest research is,

**you have to look beyond the ‘who’ and the ‘where’ of what is
happening in consumer segments to really understanding the ‘how’ and ‘why’

**looking at how consumer behaviour is changing and the pace and scale of that change can be even faster than the
growth rates in emerging markets.
