Recently, participants from TU Automotive and Aeris sat down for an in-depth webinar on the challenges and solutions encountered by the evolving automotive technology segment as it converges with consumer electronics, mobile, and IoT to re-define connectivity, mobility, and autonomous use cases.
Evan Whitelock, Product Marketing Manager, Aeris, shares how your peers are dealing with – and tackling – complexity across the fleet industry. Topics addressed will include:
• How do businesses increase usage without raising the cost of connectivity?
• How do you manage multiple deployments on a single platform and still keep costs in check?
• And, if a single, multi-tier platform can standardize processes involving multiple distribution channels and levels, how will that positively impact performance, control, and costs?
Your organization has decided to empower its growth through an Internet of Things (IoT) solution. What defines success in launching your first solution? You need a reliable partner who will allow to easily pilot and scale your connected devices, manage your resources anywhere – all from one platform.

In this webinar we will consider potential uses for coal beyond power generation and steel blast furnace furnaces. There are opportunities to use coal derived feed stocks in chemicals, minerals, agriculture, new materials and pollution control. With the electrification of energy use that is projected to double by 2040 this is raising demand for new materials and minerals that can be derived from coal to support renewable energy generation and the electrification of ground transport. The problems of desertification and fresh water supply are set to increase and coal products can be used to mitigate soil erosion, improve water quality, and also reduce emission from fossil fuel power plants.
The recent discovery of new forms of carbon is leading to applications in energy storage, aerospace and composite materials. When considering new carbon-based materials a major issue is the source of carbon and whether it is suitable to use a coal feed stock, and what the effect of that is on the quality of the product and the manufacturing complexity. In addition to new applications for carbon there is an established coal to chemicals industry that provides a host of everyday products that is encountering new environmental challenges. The versatility of carbon means that this webinar will cover a broad range of topics exploring issues and opportunities for the non-energy uses of coal.

Utilities are facing some of the strongest headwinds in their century-old history. Technology is changing how energy and resources are produced, transported, and consumed, as well as our ability to conserve them. Digital technologies have changed not so much the nature of utility services, but how consumer expect them to be delivered. They are also opening avenues for utilities to do different things, while deeply transforming their core operating model.
During the webcast, IDC Energy Insights analysts will share views on emerging utility industry and technology themes, such as:
•Digital utility maturity. Most utilities fall into what IDC defines digitally distraught organizations. These companies are either running digital as an impromptu effort, running multiple digital strategies initiated by the line of business, or are operating with a short-term perspective.
•Roadblocks on the transformation journey. Transforming is not an easy journey and most of utilities are facing execution challenges. Siloed initiatives, limited expertise, and weak roadmaps are but a few of the most common stumbling blocks.
•New key success factors utilities should consider as they evolve toward digitally determined organizations and how leading European utilities are working with the ecosystem to overcome some of the barriers to transformation.
