State of Innovation in Asia-Pacific

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: August 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.

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector: Power-to-Chemicals

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: August 2019

In our recently-published "Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector" report, we introduced electrochemical conversion as a key technology that will allow the chemical industry to decarbonize its operations by replacing fossil-based feedstock with low-carbon alternatives produced from renewable electricity. In this report, we will look at the cost of electrifying key industrial processes, including but not limited to methanol production and ammonia synthesis, as well as the regulatory framework support needed to support the adoption of electrochemical technologies in the industrial sector.

Industrial Power Symbiosis: Finding Cost-Effective Cases for On-Site Power Generation

Coverage Areas: Future Grid More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

When and how will industrial customers of electricity find it most cost-effective to source their own electricity from on-site generators? This report will match power generation technologies with the industries that can benefit from their use and secondary benefits, such as heat and hydrogen production.

Synbio Partnership Landscape

Net Zero Energy Buildings and their impact on the grid

Coverage Areas: Future Grid More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

Net zero energy buildings (NZEBs) are designed to generate as much energy as they consume and be as energy-efficient as possible. The increased availability of a variety of distributed energy resources in commercial and residential buildings is supporting the growth in deployments of NZEBs. This report looks to quantify the market for NZEBs, analyze the impact that these buildings have on the power grid, and provide a forecast of the future of energy in the built environment.

Genomics in agriculture

Coverage Areas: Agro Innovation More...

Analyzing Technical Barriers to Realizing the Hyperloop

Coverage Areas: The Future of Mobility

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

Hyperloop was first proposed as an alternative to high-speed rail or airplanes for long-distance travel in 2013. Since then, SpaceX's open call for designs has attracted dozens of startups and university groups. As the next Hyperloop Design competition approaches this summer, this report will detail the feasibility of various Hyperloop designs and identify key technical limitations.

Demystifying holography, light fields and other 3D depth reach technologies for immersive experiences.

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

As AR technologies continue to see adoption, limitations of use cases become apparent as well. Light aberrations, lack of depth perception, and vergence-accommodation stress are inherently present in current AR headsets based on various waveguides. The next generation of immersive technologies will be built on holographic image constructions and can be personalized either via worn headsets or through 3D displays that don’t require a headset and enable accessibility for multiple viewers at once. This report will detail how holography delivers natural depth perception, what’s required in terms of hardware and software development, and what applications and market opportunities are ahead for unobstructed immersive experiences.
