This edition of the Energy and Power Systems Technology Opportunity Engine (TOE) features information on the use of solid state electrolytes in sodium-ion batteries, which can withstand higher operating temperatures, development of silicon-based tandem solar cells with improved energy conversion efficiency, and fabrication of all-organic redox flow batteries that enable large scale energy storage solutions for continuous energy supply. The TOE also features information on the development of compact direct air carbon capture systems, which can be integrated with renewable hydrogen production processes to synthesize renewable fuels.
The TOE focuses on innovations associated with the use of hydrogen-based renewable energy storage system, and the latest innovations enabling the development of cost efficient bio-methanation processes. The TOE additionally provides insights on the use of advanced flow batteries that facilitate large scale renewable energy integration, and developments in the use digital twins for effective planning of smart grid infrastructure. Use of advanced electrolytes for the safer fabrication of lithium-ion batteries and the latest trends in the sustainable bioenergy production using nano-bioreactors are also covered.
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.
