Food, health, and wellness in retrospect: The top news, tech, and questions you asked in 2018

Coverage Areas: Consumer Choices in Food, Health, and Wellness

Planned Publication Date: January 2019

Over 2018, we saw major changes across the food and health value chain, from the introduction of new crops developed with gene editing to progress on growing meat without needing animals. It was an eventful year, which can make it difficult to keep perspective on the major changes, and avoid getting caught up in day-to-day happenings. This report offers a retrospective view of 2018 - the news we covered and what it means for your business, the top developers our analysts feel are worth engaging with, and the major questions that you and your competitors asked our analyst team. It also helps frame the themes we anticipate covering in 2019 and beyond

The Cost-Effective Distributed Grid: Energy Trading Within Microgrids

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: February 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.
