How Sustainable are Sustainable Feedstocks?

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2020

Bio-based materials and chemicals have long been promoted as more sustainably sourced than petroleum-based products. However, not all bio-based feedstocks are equally sustainable. In this report we assess the sustainability of different bio-based feedstocks and evaluate whether or not there is enough of a sustainable supply to meet future bio-based materials and chemicals demand. In scenarios where demand surpasses sustainable supply, we present strategies to ensure feedstock needs are met while having minimal land use or land-use change implications.

Mobility in the Smart City

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2020

As many cities grapple with growing populations, managing mobility infrastructure is a growing challenge as more people also mean more emissions and congestion. This report will look at the various emerging solutions within smart cities that can better manage mobility including intelligent traffic systems, parking infrastructure, autonomous vehicles, and methods for collecting data within the urban environment.

The Economics of Robotaxis

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2020

Developers of autonomous vehicles, specifically those focosed on level 4 self-driving vehicles, often focus on mobility services as the first application. Not only is there a demonstrated market for taxis and ride-hailing, but it's a market where the high costs of labor create high prices - making it a ripe opportunity for autonomous vehicle deployment - and are a good technology fit as they can operate in geo-fenced areas. This report will analyze the economics of fleet ownership of autonomous vehicles for ride-hailing to understand just how cheap hailed rides can be.
