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.

Bioinformatics in Agrifood and Health

Coverage Areas: Agro Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

The availability and production of biological data continues to grow as next generation analyses become more cost effective. While bioinformatic solutions are not new to the biotech industry, they are often shrouded in the jargon of genomics and computer science while fundamentally changing the roles this data across the Agrifood and Health Ecosystem. This report clearly defines bioinformatics, explores the current landscape of available tools, differentiates developers, and lays of the future opportuntiies for these solutions.

Energy Management in the Smart Home

Coverage Areas: Future Grid More...

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

The smart home ecosystem includes different types of solutions and technologies with a number of purposes, such as enabling energy savings, increasing comfort and convenience, and ensuring safety and security in the home. This report intends to focus on the role of home energy management within the smart home ecosystem.

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

The polymer 3D printing space is becoming more fragmented with hundreds of start-ups, various materials, material form factors, and involvement of large corporations and service bureaus. What is the nature of the polymer 3D printing value chain? How is the partnership network evolving? And, what are the partnerships opportunities in the polymer 3D printing value chain?

The Digital Transformation of Industries

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: September 2019

The digital transformation provides a launching point for digital-native companies to establish themselves in the physical industries. Incumbents need to anticipate how this change will impact their industry and act on the threats that they face. We create a framework for understanding the digital transformation of an industry, which identifies six core outcomes that digital transformation achieves in any application: uncover invisible insights, predict the future, optimize, upskill humans, make information accessible, and automate. We also discuss how digital use cases, tools, and outcomes are typically lateral across industries, and thus how learnings from one industry can translate to another.

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.

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector
