State of the Market Report

Innovating Innovation: How Technology is Changing Technology Innovation

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

As the importance of innovation for company growth has risen, the complexity of innovation management has soared, limiting its impact. To get back on the path to growth, companies need to add the next new discipline to innovation management – data science – to better integrate existing tools and improve efficiency and impact.

Li-ion Battery Innovation Roadmap

Coverage Areas: Energy Storage More...

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

This report will look at timelines for adoption of various Li-ion electrode materials and present our view of how the Li-ion battery will evolve over the next decade.

Corporate Tech Innovation is a Solved Problem: What You Need to Know to Be a Leader

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

This report will discuss the most important corporate innovation tools, highlighting some neglected tools, and the keys to successful implementation.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution for Every Industry: A Taxonomy of Industry 4.0​

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

Industry 4.0 encompasses the digitization and interlinking of the entire value chain of a physical, product-based industry. This taxonomy first examines the various components of such a value chain, and then further deconstructs and examines the most relevant use cases, applications, technologies, and key players under each. ​Additionally, we recommend that companies exploring an Industry 4.0 initiative should look at use-cases and technologies that are relatively mature, easy to implement, and carry a high, tangible ROI.

Harnessing the potential of digital technologies for the food industry

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

Digital technologies are creating a major impact on every industry. In this report, we will assess the potential of emerging digital technologies for various applications within the food value chain. It will also highlight opportunities for the industry players to harness the digital toolbox and discuss key winning aspects of successful use cases in the food industry.

Innovating innovation using digital technologies

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

While data collection and analysis offers the ability to transform all parts of the value chain in manufacturing, applying this to innovate new products represents a unique opportunity. It is not capex-intensive, not that disruptive to ongoing operations, and can significantly decrease time and cost involved in product development in the manufacturing sector. This report will identify how clients in the manufacturing sector can enhance their innovation efforts through the use of advanced data analytics and other digital technologies. We will also explore how digitalization of innovation will impact the underlying core innovation processes itself.

The Cost-Effective Distributed Grid: Energy Trading Within Microgrids

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: May 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.

Innovations in Wave and Tidal Energy

Coverage Areas: Next Generation Power More...

Planned Publication Date: May 2019

Tidal and wave energy can deliver dispatchable power to the grid that is still renewable. As such, they may replace gas peakers and other backup facilities in the future. However, this technology is hard to deploy, mostly because of harsh mechanical conditions. This report lists the innovations in the space in order to assess its true potential.

Monitoring and Control for Water Quality

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition More...

Planned Publication Date: May 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.
