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?
The software-defined data center has been a heavily touted concept over the past few years, and heralded by some as the next step in the evolution of virtualization and cloud computing. Having a data center that is governed by software, rather than dictated by hardware, can lead to more fully automated and intelligent operations. Having infrastructure elements such as networking, storage and security conceived of as a services is, indeed, an attractive concept to many.
In this webinar we will be joined by JR Rivers, Co-Founder and CTO of Cumulus Networks, to talk about how he (and Cumulus) define the concept of a software-defined data center. He will present how the definition of a software-defined data center has evolved since its inception, and how tools like VXLAN, EVPN, Ansible and more can help organizations further their journey to a “software-defined” state and simplify network operations.

Innovative approaches to improving flexibility and emissions from coal-fired power plants. Combining solar power, or natural gas cofiring with coal-fired power plant. Innovative approaches to improving flexibility and emissions from coal-fired power plants. Combining solar power, or natural gas cofiring with coal-fired power plant.
To remain competitive, coal-fired fleets are having to adapt to meet the changing circumstances. Increasingly flexible operation is a key factor in this, and power generators are exploring possible routes forward. New techniques and strategies are being considered or adopted in order to maintain the commercial and economic viability of coal-fired plants.
There are a number of ways in which power plant flexibility can be enhanced – this webinar explores two techniques that show potential - combining solar energy with coal-fired generation, and cofiring natural gas with coal. Both techniques are already used on a commercial basis, although deployment levels are currently low. However, under the appropriate conditions, both show potential for application to some existing and new-build power plants.

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.
Carbon capture and storage must be implemented on a global scale if ambitious targets for greenhouse gas emissions are to be met, yet deployment of the technology over the last decade has been slow. CCS faces a number of unique barriers, including high upfront costs and investment risks, uncertain public and political support, and a need for new regulatory regimes. To help overcome these barriers, a number of formal collaborations have been established between countries with commitments to CCS development. Multilateral initiatives such as the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum and the Clean Energy Ministerial have sought to share research experience, spread favourable policy and regulation, promote public acceptance, and build mutual trust on commitment to CCS. Several bilateral agreements, often between an OECD country and China, have also been created over the last decade with a view to promote investment and joint research into CCS. This webinar will briefly review the barriers to CCS development and highlight the work of some key multilateral and bilateral initiatives, as well as the challenges they have faced.
