This edition of the Energy and Power Systems TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) covers innovations in various forms of battery technologies such as lithium batteries, solid-state batteries, and so on. The battery developments are aimed at improving energy density and lowering manufacturing costs. Alternatives to lithium-ion batteries are also discussed. The TOE also covers developments in other energy storage innovations such as pumped hydro and thermal energy storage. Key developments in the solar industry such as newer generation of bifacial panels are covered as well.

The Energy and Power Systems TOE provides insights on the latest advances in the broad range of technology related to the energy industry. The topics regularly presented range from energy storage technologies (solid state batteries, solar chemical storage and other advanced energy storage devices) to non-renewable energy such as oil and gas.

Special emphasis is given to emerging areas in the renewable sector such as photovoltaics, wind energy, and geothermal energy, and emerging alternative fuels such as hydrogen, syngas, ethanol and biofuels. The EPS TOE keeps clients abreast of the latest R&D developments at major corporate and academic research centers, provides competitor intelligence and helps create strategic alliances.

The Energy and Environment cluster provides global insights and intelligence on a wide variety of disruptive emerging technologies and platforms ranging from energy storage, advanced batteries, solar and wind energy, to unconventional oil, bioenergy, geothermal energy, and energy transmission.
