This edition of the Energy and Power Systems (EPS) TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides insights on the latest advances in technology related to the energy industry. Small wind energy industry has the potential to play a ‘’ game changing’’ role in future global energy mix. The current TOE profiles advances in small wind energy industries including horizontal- and vertical-axis small wind turbines. The need for more efficient and noise-free wind applications is driving innovations in wind energy space. Research focus areas of TOE incudes wind turbine innovations, bladeless wind power generation, Tubercle Technology, 5 blade wind turbines, and flapping wind turbines. The TOE provides intelligence on solving inherent industry challenges such as cost, efficiency, and safety.
The Energy and Power Systems (EPS) TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides insights on the latest advances in the broad range of technology related to the energy industry. The topics regularly presented range from energy storage technologies (batteries, fuel cells, flywheels and other advanced energy storage devices) to non-renewable energy such as oil and gas. Special emphasis is given to emerging areas in the renewable sector such as photovoltaics, wind energy, and geothermal energy, and emerging alternative fuels such as hydrogen, syngas, ethanol and biofuels. The EPS TOE keeps clients abreast of the latest R&D developments at major corporate and academic research centers, provides competitor intelligence and helps create strategic alliances.
The Energy and Environment cluster provides global insights and intelligence on a wide variety of disruptive emerging technologies and platforms ranging from energy storage, advanced batteries, solar and wind energy, to unconventional oil, bioenergy, geothermal energy, and energy transmission.
