Asia's Future City

Asia's rising urbanization presents numerous opportunities for bleeding edge technology deployment. However, at the same time, lack of traditional infrastructure and a variety of problems from traffic congestion and pollution, will only be amplified as droves of people migrate into cities. While most nations plan to address the immediate needs, several have futuristic aspirations for developing digital societies in a future city. In this report, we analyze the key technologies that will address the demands of Asia's future city as well as highlight the key innovators developing them domestically.

How to Make Money in Energy Storage: Deriving Value through Stacking Revenue Streams

Batteries for grid energy storage are not yet economically viable, but this may change if it becomes possible to address multiple businesses at the same time. That is hard to do, however, because different applications require different battery characteristics. This report will investigate the technical and business potential for application stacking, and identify which locations in the grid are most favorable to tap into different revenue streams.

The hurdles to microLED displays

In the past five years, there has been a significant uptick in investment in microLED technology. Apple, Foxconn-Sharp, Samsung, and Facebook have all recently acquired startups in this space, as microLED is considered a direct competitor to OLED, with its longer lifetime and more responsive performance. In this report, we will discuss the microLED landscape and its major barriers to entry.

The Cost-Effective Distributed Grid: Energy Trading Within Microgrids

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.
