  • It is no secret that the Modular Data Center Market is witnessing extremely high growth rates. This webinar will explore the market trends and growth opportunities in different regions, vertical application sectors, and application types. We will provide a realistic picture of the current market size and conditions, and include market insights from our guest speaker, Ted Reddicliffe, chairman, Cannon Technologies.
  • The major threats for the water industry in Asia-Pacific (APAC) that may necessitate significant adoption of smart grid solutions are water scarcity, aging Infrastructure, population growth and urbanization, and climate change. Furthermore, the developing economies in are suffering in water management due to a vicious cycle of non-revenue water (NRW). As a result, the adoption of smart water meter (SWM) solutions is expected to see more than 20% growth annually post 2015 in the region.
  • The residential water treatment equipment (RWTE) market in Asia-Pacific is fueled by growing concern about potable water condition and increasing awareness on various associated benefits that water treatment equipment claims to provide. Market revenue and unit shipment will grow between 7 to 8% annually until 2020. Southeast Asia brings the highest growth in APAC’s RWTE market.
  • Global investment in the renewable energy (RE) market exceeded $300 billion in 2014, at a 16% growth rate over 2013. Biomass and waste-to-energy (WTE) projects saw more than $8 billion worth of investment in 2014. With rising primary energy needs, Southeast Asia is experiencing power turbulence across most of its economically backward regions, indicating a heightened need to implement RE projects for better energy security. There is an urgent need for effective waste management spurring the growth of biomass and waste-to-power projects in Southeast Asia.
    Key Takeaway:
    •Understand the potential of biomass in the region and countries that would take the lead.
    •Government support in the form of regulations and policy framework will provide the much needed push.
    •What are the best practices and key success factors for increasing biomass power projects in the region?
    •How will the market change with the application of new technologies to treat biomass and waste?
  • Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

    For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

    This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.
  • On a given day in January 2014, renewable energy generation, accounted for more than 105% of Denmark's power demand. This was more than what the existing network could handle, creating voltage and frequency management issues. As the proportion of renewable energy increases in a country's energy mix, it creates significant technical, regulatory and business challenges. Globally, utilities are spending nearly $25 billion in maintaining and modernizing their power grid infrastructure. With the need to integrate more renewable, this will only increase. Is there a risk of these increased investments becoming stranded assets for utilities?

    Key Takeaway from the presentation:

    1. Understand the challenges and consequences of integrating large amount of renewable into utilities
    2. Learn about the Increasing role of energy storage technologies in integrating renewable into utilities
    3. Case studies from early adopters like Germany and Denmark
    4. What are the best practices and key success factors for integration
    5. Role of disruptive technologies and policy makers
  • The term Smart City is gaining momentum the world over, but does that mean that cities are becoming “smarter” or just looking to improve their image? What does it truly mean to be a “smart” city? And is it resonating with their residents, businesses and visitors? This briefing will look into how the smallest changes approaching city services can have a big impact on everything from security to energy and traffic to urban revitalization

    Reasons to Attend:

    - To understand key challenges cities are facing in the face of issues such as urbanization, environmental responses and new technologies
    - To examine new ways cities are integrating smarter solutions to address seemingly unrelated services, for better quality of life and a higher tax base
    - To explore how suppliers can provide comprehensive solutions to such a fragmented market
  • Connected homes are prime examples of innovative applications of technology meant to enable enriched lifestyle experiences for consumers. However, allowing third parties an open access to home networks to deliver these experiences exposes both the consumer and service providers to the potential vulnerabilities of cyberspace. It is critical to understand that cyber threats require collective responsibility and accountability sharing from all stakeholders involved.

    This briefing will deliberate upon the issue of cybersecurity as it pertains to the connected home environment. An expert panel comprising members of Frost & Sullivan, connected home technology leaders, and a consumer privacy advocate will provide advice and opinions with regard to addressing this disruptive trend. Industry participants will learn how to address the issue of cyber breach and maintain continued interest in living the connected experience.
  • Attend this webinar to discover:

    - What factors are forcing change on power utilities businesses?
    - Which regions are most at risk or undergoing the most rapid transformations?
    - How are the most affected power utilities dealing with these threats?
    - What are possible future business models for power utilities to retain strong market positions?
  • By late 2014, LED lighting had passed the 30% threshold penetration of the global lighting market. It was the second consecutive boom year, confirming the breakthrough in the key regions of Europe, North America, and China. Driven by enhanced controllability and energy efficiency, the revolution will continue and momentum will build throughout 2015. This transformational change brings massive opportunities across value chains, but also presents huge strategic challenges to incumbent participants in terms of pace of technology change and business model.
