Analyst Insight

The Cost-Effective Distributed Grid: Energy Trading Within Microgrids

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

While the energy transition promises a decentralized electrical grid composed of a network of actors with distributed energy resources, microgrids are not cost-effective for many electricity customers around the world. However, recent years have seen a rise of energy trading software platforms, which promise to provide better compensation for distributed generation and energy assets. We examine the combination of energy trading and microgrid technology to determine if we have finally crossed that critical financial turning point - whether it is more cost-effective to source electricity from distributed resources than from the electrical grid.

Monitoring and Control for Water Quality

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

Due to the size and complexity of water and wastewater systems and the premium instrument costs, the water industry has struggled to automate water quality monitoring. Meanwhile, increasing concerns over public health and irregularly but inexorably tightening regulations put utilities under pressure to ensure safe drinking water and wastewater discharge. Potential to improve plant performance and uptime also encourage more active adoption of advanced sensors among industrial operators. This report shows the interesting use cases for different water quality sensors across the water space.

Digital Sales Platforms

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

This report will use the digital business model framework to understand the impact of digital tools and technologies on the sales process in the materials and chemicals space. It will cover a landscape of current activities, parse the benefits of digital transformation in chemical sales, and highlight future directions for development and integration.

State of Innovation in Asia-Pacific

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

As the dynamics of the global innovation ecosystem continues to shift with the rise of China, interest in Asia-Pacific has never been greater. While historical powerhouses, such as Japan and Korea, continue to innovate at their reputable rates, China's nationa initiatives as well as the flow of their capital into the surrounding areas - Southeast Asia and India - will likely spur the rise of new innovation ecosystems. In this report we take a look at the key hotspots for innovation, identifying the major players in the powerhouses, as well as finding hidden gems in the less thought about countries.

Digitizing the fight against diabetes: From therapy to prevention

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

In this report we approach the digital management of diabetes by looking at the complete health spectrum from healthy to severely diseased individuals and highlight unmet needs and opportunities that digital health developers should take advantage of. We also highlight how these strategies should consider underlying differences, from molecular to cultural, when addressing different markets and regions.

How to Form a Materials Informatics Strategy

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: March 2019

Materials informatics applies data science and AI methods to better understand the use, selection, development, and discovery of materials. As an emerging technology with strong momentum during the past year, it is used across the value chain, from upstream materials and chemicals developers to downstream product manufacturers. In this report, we provide a comprehensive understanding of the key players and their activities in this space. Specifically, we will review different application areas, data challenges, and recent developments from both startups and large corporations. We also provide our vision on the near future of how materials informatics will expand from materials to parts and products, from working with a few R&D units to establishing a whole platform for each part of the value chain. Finally, we discuss why clients across the value chain should overcome the data-sharing fear to work on materials informatics. We also propose three strategies to engage with materials informatics and advise on how to form a strategy that works the best.
