Data Shows Demand for Alternative Energy Continues to Grow
NEW YORK, February 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/
According to Allied Market Research, the Global Renewable Energy Market was valued at $ 1,405,646 million in 2016, and is projected to reach at $2,152,903 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2017 to 2025. The report indicates that in recent years, the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix is on a continuous rise. Renewable energy is generated from natural processes that are constantly replenished, including sunlight, geothermal heat, water, wind, tides, and various forms of biomass. Nations around the world have started using renewable energy for power production, owing to rise in the environmental issues such as climatic changes and depleting ozone layer. Greenkraft, Inc.

According to a recent research data provided by Deloitte, robust customer demand is one of the key factors likely to bolster renewable development in the near term. Corporations, in particular, have been rapidly expanding renewable procurement in recent years. Deloitte explained that, "by early December 2017, 117 companies had committed to 100 percent renewable power as part of the RE100 campaign. And the movement is spreading from large companies to small and mid-sized companies, as many larger companies begin to require sustainability measures be met across their supply chains By late 2017, 170 mayors had pledged their support for a community-wide transition to 100 percent renewable energy in cities, towns, and communities across the United States-and a handful of US cities have already reached that goal."
Greenkraft, Inc. (OTCQB: GKIT) earlier this week announced that, "Several fleet operators will be applying for the California Carl Moyer Program funding to replace their existing vehicles with Greenkraft vehicles.
Fleet operators that operate delivery trucks, towing trucks, and several other vocational trucks are applying for funding to replace their 2009 and older trucks. The program is the Carl Moyer Program: On Road Heavy Duty Voucher Incentive program (VIP) that offers incentives from $10,000 to $60,000 per new truck depending on the class. The VIP is implemented by SCAQMD and will be opening in March 2018. Greenkraft offers trucks from class 4 to 7 and Greenkraft can provide trucks to these fleet operators. The program will help Greenkraft obtain more clients and ultimately more revenue for 2018.
