Nature of assessment: The assessment has been conducted thoroughly, in a very sincere and strict manner, so as to include all the important aspects that comprise a typical energy market. Both renewable and non-renewable forms of energy have been studied, with thorough examination of their needs, impact, and scope of development.
Conclusions drawn from the assessment:

- Energy market and environment: The energy market has been assessed to have a direct impact on the environment. While the renewable energy sources can be safely termed as eco-friendly, the non-renewable ones cause enough harm to the environment.
- Cost: The energy market costs for the harnessing of renewable energy sources are high compared to those of the non-renewable ones, on an average, owing to their safe nature and many other benefits.
- Market demands: There has been a mixed trend as far as the customer demands for energy is concerned, mostly based on availability of the energy source in the particular locations and also the economic status of various groups of clients.
