Planned Publication Date: August 2019

This report will quantify the growing market for energy storage, developing market forecasts to project the adoption of energy storage across transportation, consumer electronics, and stationary sectors.

Water Quality Monitoring: Why, How, and The Future

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition More...

Planned Publication Date: August 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.

Water Infrastructure in the Developing World

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition More...

Planned Publication Date: August 2019

The main opportunity for innovation in water infrastructure exists in developing countries, because they are not hampered by difficult-to-replace legacy infrastructure. This report looks into the developments and describes what technologies are actually being deployed, and why.

Energy Management in the Smart Home

Coverage Areas: Future Grid More...

Planned Publication Date: August 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. The goal is to highlight available technologies and their current applications in the smart home and identify gaps, key challenges, and areas of opportunity.

The Digital Transformation of Industries

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: August 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.

The Digital Maturity Model

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation

Planned Publication Date: August 2019

There is significant hype around digital transformation and companies are vying with each other to build connected products and processes. However, estimates indicate that more than 80% of digital transformation projects fail. One of the reasons these organizations fail is due to a significant mismatch between their digital capabilities and their digital goals. Companies need a framework to determine their current level of "digitalness" and what capabilities they need to add to get to the next level; in this manner, they can approach their digital transformation in a step-by-step manner thus enhancing their chances of success. In this report, we will present the Lux Digital Maturity Model which will clearly define the different levels of digital maturity in terms of various underlying parameters. In subsequent research, we plan to use this maturity model to benchmark the maturity of digital transformation in various sectors.

The Digital Transformation of Oil and Gas

Coverage Areas: Digital Transformation More...

Planned Publication Date: August 2019

The digital transformation of the oil and gas industry has accelerated at a rapid rate in the last decade ever since the 2014 oil price crash. Oil and gas has gradually transitioned from a digital laggard to a potential leader in digital technologies such as digital twins, predictive maintenance, and gas detection. In this report, we discuss the underlying drivers for the industry's imminent push for digital and analyze the primary struggle it faces today of "digital scale-up".

Thermal Management Materials Innovation Landscape

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

State of Innovation in Asia-Pacific

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: August 2019

As the dynamics of the global innovation ecosystem continues to shift with the rise of China, interest in Asia-Pacific has never been greater. While historical powerhouses, such as Japan and Korea, continue to innovate at their reputable rates, China's nationa initiatives as well as the flow of their capital into the surrounding areas - Southeast Asia and India - will likely spur the rise of new innovation ecosystems. In this report we take a look at the key hotspots for innovation, identifying the major players in the powerhouses, as well as finding hidden gems in the less thought about countries.
