- Circular Economy
Hydrogen has a vital role in the global energy transition
Green hydrogen is produced by the electrolysis of water using renewable electricity. The global hydrogen capacity increased to 26GW in 2021. The world needs almost 1000 GW by 2050 to meet the demand forecasts. And that’s just for the green hydrogen which will be 75% of global production by 2050.
The Technology and Innovation Report of 2021
Frontier technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, robotics and biotechnology are key for sustainable development. Potentially worth over $3.2 trillion by 2025, these technologies could increase inequality. It’s vital that the less developing countries don’t miss out on this wave of technological change.
Digital technologies enable a more sustainable world
Organisations need to adapt their business models to remain in business. Digital technologies should be integrated into all areas of a business to fundamentally change how organisations operate and deliver value. While this might be a scary vision for some, it is one of the strongest drivers of change.
Circular Economy is a trillion dollar market opportunity
Transitioning to a circular economic model is critical to reducing environmental degradation. The circular economy also presents a unique market opportunity as it’s been estimated to be worth more than $4.5 trillion by 2030. This can be reached by the uptake of disruptive technological innovations.
Artificial intelligence for detailed satellite data analysis
Earth observation satellites generate big amounts of data. Artificial intelligence can help in the analysis of this data, for example it can calculate the levels of heat storage in urban areas. Artificial intelligence can also combine meteorological data with satellite imagery to estimate wind speed.
