1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Amphibious Energy is a clean technology power plant which is capable of producing
unlimited energy and which can be modified to work in outer space. Market research indicates
that many countries worldwide are currently switching to renewable energy over the last five
years and the potential of growth a company like Amphibious Energy would have due to the
demand for energy worldwide. We believe that employing experts in their trades that come from
the fields of electrical engineers and computer-aided designers of industrial equipment in the
startup phase; Amphibious Energy has the potential to grow and maximize profits.
Amphibious Energy is a startup clean technology power plant capable of producing
unlimited energy and which can be modified to work in outer space. Clean Technology Power
Plant is in its infant stages and needs investment capital from ASUS Lending to survive through
its startup phase. Being the first of its kind, Our Clean Technology Power Plant would
immediately begin turning a profit the moment we design and build it correctly. The engine that
powers the Clean Technology Power Plant is the first of its kind and will not produce emissions
that harm humanity or the ecosystem.
The Amphibious Energy competes in the renewable energy industry, which highly
depends on high expertise. The use of resources that are naturally renewable within a human
lifetime characterizes renewable energy. Sources of renewable energy include sunlight, wind,
Amphibious Energy Business Plan 6
waves, and geothermal heats. The use of renewables has grown due to several factors, such as
concerns about the environmental impacts of conventional fossil fuel sources, growing
populations, and urbanization, as well as the decreasing cost of renewable technologies. The
desire for security has spurred the use of renewable energy and distributed energy generation
within the electric power distribution system. In 2005, only a few companies outside of Europe
and North America had implemented policies and targets to increase renewable energy capacity.
Still, over a decade later, the vast majority of countries around the globe have established their
targets. China and The United States are the leaders in the consumption of renewable energies
and have both experienced a steady increase in their consumption of renewables.
As we began in 2020, the renewable energy industry was preparing to enter a new phase
of growth primarily driven by increasing customer demand, cost competitiveness, innovation,
and collaboration. Within a few months, the COVID-19 pandemic caused significant disruption
across the sector. Although the industry is still grappling with the full impact of the crisis, the
outlook is changing rapidly. Success factors are service, quality, and price—Amphibious Energy
believes that hard-earned money is best spent, whenever possible, on well-made products
produced by entrepreneurs, makers, and innovators.
The global renewable energy market valued at $928.0 Billion in 2017, expected to reach
$1,512.3 Billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 6.1% from 2018-2025. Renewable energy
technologies convert energy from different natural sources such as the sun, tides, wind, and
others, into its usable forms such as electricity. The global renewable energy market will grow
significantly during the forecast period owing to increased emissions of Greenhouse gases
(GHGs), mainly CO2, due to the utilization of fossil fuels for the generation of energy.
Amphibious Energy Business Plan 7
The renewable energy market divides into type, end-use, and region. Renewable energy-
based on type market divides into hydroelectric power, solar energy, and geothermal energy;
based on end-use, the market categorizes into residential, commercial, and industrial. Based on
the region, the market analyzes across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. Due to the
increased demand for energy Asia-Pacific expects to grow fast. The presence of these countries
boosts the renewable energy market owing to factors such as a rise in population, rapid
industrialization along with favorable policies for the renewable energy sector. The continuing
advancement in the renewable energy market has opened up new opportunities; Clean
Technology Power Plants like Amphibious Energy.
We are not ignorant that there are growing competitions in the renewable energy industry, which
is why we will hire some of the best marketing experts to handle our sales and marketing. Being
in the renewable energy industry, we will keep tabs on new trends and products that are always
coming up in the industry. We will ensure that we develop strategic pacts with corporate
organizations, which will give our company several options to generate revenue.
