  • The Ubiquitous Nature of PFAS Demands Global Attention Dec 17 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Seth Cutler, Principal Consultant and Fred Royan, Vice President, Frost & Sullivan
    While the world is still determining the true extent and impact of PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) on humans and the environment, responsible parties must act now.

    Water utilities, chemical manufacturers, treatment manufacturers, and others in the value chain, such as testing laboratories, are moving quickly to limit damage and preserve human health.

    Despite the concerns, businesses can maximize growth opportunities such as laboratory testing, site assessment consulting, and a flexible portfolio of treatment solutions to widely varying site contamination.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Learn how different technologies deliver varying benefits to treat PFAS
    • Discover key variations in response and mitigation strategies that customers demand
    • See why more customers are becoming critical-need customers as PFAS contamination is more fully understood
    • Explore how your organization can access growth opportunities and avoid those with high barriers to entry
  • Growth Opportunities in the Global Solar PV Market Dec 3 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jonathan Robinson, Frost & Sullivan
    After a decade of declining solar costs and accelerating interest from investors, what's next for solar photovoltaic (PV)? The 2010s were a stellar decade for solar PV; technology costs tumbled, and the drive to decarbonize the power sector encouraged governments and investors to back solar projects. Europe led the way, with growth accelerating in China and the US over the decade. The decade ahead promises further growth and continued investor opportunities. Frost & Sullivan forecasts a total of $1.5 billion to be invested over the decade, with half going to utility-scale projects and the rest going to commercial, industrial, and residential PV systems. More homes and businesses will be prosumers, relying on self-generation for most of their needs, enabled through energy storage systems. This will drive the growth of virtual power plants to aggregate these resources and maintain the integrity of the electricity grid.

    For the 2020s, growth is set to continue, but the market dynamics will continue to change. This briefing will cover:

    - Which geographic markets will be the next key hotspots?
    - How much will the utility, commercial, and residential PV sectors grow?
    - What new technology innovations will improve solution offerings and drive future growth?
    - Which investor business models will sustain growth over the decade?
    - How will service propositions evolve to meet the needs of both aging assets and greenfield arms operating in harsh environmental conditions?
  • Green Hydrogen: Growth Opportunities in Power Sector Recorded: Oct 15 2020 45 mins
    Jonathan Robinson, Director and Swagath Manohar, Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan
    In this session, we examine the current and future market potential of green hydrogen. Currently, green hydrogen accounts for less than 1% of global hydrogen production; given the forecast surge in demand, this figure must increase dramatically to enable the development of a sustainable hydrogen economy. For this to be achieved, massive investment will be required to boost production capacity and will need to be underpinned by a robust regulatory framework to incentivize market participants.

    Register for this webinar and learn about:
    • Key growth opportunities and applications for green hydrogen
    • The production conundrum—potential to scale up production
    • Leading players in the green hydrogen value chain
  • Hydrogen Economy Energizing Growth: What You Should Know Now! Recorded: Oct 6 2020 55 mins
    Jonathan Robinson, Director and Swagath Manohar, Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan
    As an energy carrier, hydrogen will be instrumental to a future of sustainable energy. It will contribute to the decarbonization of transportation, industrial energy, building heat, and power applications. Hybrid energy solutions with combined lithium-ion and hydrogen systems give the best of both technologies— power and fast reactivity of lithium-ion and high energy density and zero energy loss during storage from hydrogen—and create a promising market opportunity for both systems.

    Register for this webinar and learn about:
    • Growth opportunities across hydrogen value and supply chains
    • Key trends in hydrogen R&D and innovation
    • Technology breakthroughs in hydrogen production, storage, and transportation

  • The Future of Water Management in US Unconventional Oil and Gas Exploration Recorded: Apr 2 2019 54 mins
    Seth Cutler, Principal Consultant, Maria Benintende, Senior Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan
    Water requirements to satisfy fracking activity have skyrocketed in high-production basins, such as the Permian Basin, in recent years. The growth of absolute wells is putting pressure on water resources and the volumes of water used per frac are increasing. Aside from the increased cost of water and produced water treatment, the sourcing of frac water and transportation logistics place operators under stress to deliver stable and sustainable operations. These fundamental challenges are changing the way the industry engages with and manages water. An increase in the recycling of produced water and the growth of midstream partners, as well as their financial backers, are changing the industry landscape.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Discover how industry peers are changing their business models to drive sustainable operations.
    • Explore critical opportunities and pitfalls of managing a fundamental resource in a fast-growing industry.

    Tim Braun, EMNET, Chris Rezendes, IoT Impact Labs, Jeffrey L. Lape, EPA, Peter Mulvaney, West Monroe Partners, Frost&Sullivan
    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.
