  • Machine Room-less Elevators in the developing economies in Southeast Asia
    Machine Room-less Elevators in the developing economies in Southeast Asia Jieqiang Tan, Principal Consultant, Energy & Environment Recorded: Aug 23 2017 51 mins
    Elevator market growth is mainly attributed to the increasing rate of urbanization, which leads to cities becoming denser with highrise buildings. Due to growing limitations of land space, high-rise residential and commercial buildings are high in demand and boost the adoption of elevators. Maintenance will grow along with the growing elevator installed base, and it is a recurring income stream for market participants. More often than not, elevator companies receive low margins from new equipment sales and balance it with the maintenance contracts offered to customers.

    Questions this session will answer:

    o How is the elevator market expanding in the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia?
    o Which are the leading elevator companies in Southeast Asia?
    o What are the key success factors, and how are they different in each Southeast Asian elevator market?
    o Where are the key opportunities and elevator customer segments in these countries?

  • Boosting Adoption of Smart Water Networks through Policy
    Boosting Adoption of Smart Water Networks through Policy Tim Braun, EMNET, Chris Rezendes, IoT Impact Labs, Jeffrey L. Lape, EPA, Peter Mulvaney, West Monroe Partners, Frost&Sullivan Recorded: Jun 8 2017 56 mins
    North America is in a period of transition with new political directions. This includes the drive to constrict the EPA and reduce regulation in the midst of national worries over water quality, the adoption of new technologies and business models, an increased need for partnerships at the local level, and incorporating private partners and practices. Now more now than ever, water utilities must build a framework to adopt policies and directions to improve local efficiencies and management. Data-driven smart water technologies are poised to be at the center of this transition, helping North American water utilities manage current and impending challenges, and form the bridge between today's utility operations and successful navigation of the changing policy landscape.

  • Power and Petrochemicals Dominate the Mobile Treatment Market
    Power and Petrochemicals Dominate the Mobile Treatment Market Seth Cutler, Senior Industry Analyst, Energy & Environment Recorded: May 16 2017 34 mins
    Without mobile water and wastewater treatment systems, end users across all industries would incur sever service disruptions, regulatory non-compliance issues, and an inability to cater to agile needs for mobile activity in select industries, such as Oil & Gas. The critical nature of products and services in this market presents growth opportunities at all levels. Despite three key market participants, GE Water & Process Technologies, Evoqua, and MPW Industries, the range of technologies used and low customer loyalty present market openings for many organizations. Those that cater to industry needs and understand their demands can make strong inroads in the future.

  • LPWAN Networks for Smart Communities and the Industrial Internet
    LPWAN Networks for Smart Communities and the Industrial Internet Yann Gabay - CONNIT; Brian Ray - Link Labs, Tiana McNeil - Ingenu, Jeff Siegel - nwave, Limor Schafman - TIA Recorded: Feb 15 2017 62 mins
    LPWAN (low power wide area network) technologies service a specific and necessary role in the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. Not all applications need bandwidth and speed. Sometimes long distance, low energy usage, and long latency is the perfect confluence of service that an IoT application needs. Some examples are city lighting, energy grid and meter management, parking space monitoring, precision irrigation, crop yield management, and many more.

    This webcast will present different LPWAN technologies and discuss a number of questions regarding technology and value assessment, deployment, usage of such networks, and return on investment evaluations.

    - An explanation of LPWAN technology and how it works
    - When to use (and not use) LPWAN technology
    - What issues such networks solve
    - The difference between U.S. and European bands and when this will matter to a company deploying an LPWAN network
    - Key information that cities and companies need to both ask and be ready to answer when planning to deploy an LPWAN network, in order to assess the right fit and to maximize efficiencies such connectivity can bring
    - How LPWAN networks integrate with other network infrastructure in smart community deployments, for example
    - Sample use cases
    - Business models that use LPWAN networks for energy management, asset management, and others
    - How to make money as both a user and deployer of LPWAN networks
    - What returns on investment can be expected and suggested metrics for measurement

  • The importance of smart cards in identification and skills development
    The importance of smart cards in identification and skills development Lynn Sencide Recorded: Jan 18 2017 41 mins
    Establishing the identity, training and qualifications of workers has never been so important, for both contractors and operatives.

    The ACRIB SKILLcard is the essential registration scheme for individuals working in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump sector.

    The unique technology built into every smart SKILLcard allows operatives to instantly prove they have the right skills and qualifications to carry out work, giving contractors the confidence that they have the right person for the job.

    On Wednesday 18th January SKILLcard, in association with ACR News, will host a free webinar on how the ACRIB SKILLcard developed for the RACHP sector, allows operatives the same benefits, including evidence of F gas and other qualifications reassuring potential clients with proof of competency.

    The benefits of smart technology are increasing all the time, with the addition of new apps and software, making SKILLcard even more indispensable.

  • Independent Power Producers – Powering Up Asia Beyond 2020
    Independent Power Producers – Powering Up Asia Beyond 2020 Ravi Krishnaswamy, Senior Vice President - Energy & Environment, Asia Pacific, Frost & Sullivan Oct 18 2017 6:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Developing Asia, which has significant peak power shortages and substantial electrification gaps, offers abundant opportunities for developers or independent power plants (IPPs). Increasing energy demand due to economic growth, an increase in population, and urbanization have necessitated that governments of all countries develop policies opening up and attracting private investments in the power generation sector. Despite current economic conditions, the IPP growth outlook is still optimistic, considering that South Asia and many Southeast Asian countries are expected to have some of the highest GDP growth rates in the world. The governments are putting in place policy framework and institutional mechanisms to attract investment and facilitate development of IPPs to power their growth.
