  5. 5. Technical Insights’ Sustainable Energy Technology Cluster • Provides global insights and intelligence that serves as a decision making pointers for industry players • Covers developments related to emerging and disruptive technologies and solutions that address global challenges related to energy sustainability • Scope of content includes energy generation, storage, infrastructure, and efficiency • Provides global insights and intelligence that serves as a decision making pointers for industry players • Covers developments related to emerging and disruptive technologies and solutions that address global challenges related to energy sustainability • Scope of content includes energy generation, storage, infrastructure, and efficiency DefinitionDefinition Natural Gas CoverageCoverage Technologies/ platforms covered Renewable Heating Energy Storage Advanced Batteries Energy Transmission Wind Energy Natural Gas Biomass Energy Biofuels Geothermal Energy Solar Energy 5
  6. 6. Key Trends – Political POLITICAL ECONOMICS SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY Volatility in Regional Politics Rise of Connected Living Pursuit for Cost Effectiveness • Energy becomes a critical political weapon • State of the economy dictates national policies • Shifting political sentiment can shift or reverse national RE policies Role of Natural Gas and the Developing World 6
  7. 7. Key Trends – Economics POLITICAL ECONOMICS SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY Volatility in Political Sentiment Role of Natural Gas and the Developing World Rise of Connected Living Pursuit for Cost Effectiveness • Availability of natural gas, particularly from hydraulic fracking, makes it an attractive option • Changing role of the United States from energy importer to energy exporter • Rapid growth of renewable energy in the developing world 7
  8. 8. Key Trends – Social POLITICAL ECONOMICS SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY Rise of Connected Living Pursuit for Cost Effectiveness • Internet-of-Things (IoT) will enable smart energy management • Increasing role of end users in making energy purchase decisions • Energy grid security will become increasingly critical Volatility in Political Sentiment Role of Natural Gas and the Developing World 8
  9. 9. Key Trends – Technology POLITICAL ECONOMICS SOCIAL TECHNOLOGY Volatility in Political Sentiment Changing Dynamics of Natural Gas Rise of Connected Living Pursuit for Cost Effectiveness • Renewables face increasing pressure to decrease cost • Increasing calls to combat climate change to drive R&D into sustainable energy • Natural gas to become a critical transitional energy in the coming decade 9

  11. 11. Top Technology Trends Energy Storage Natural Gas • Increasing interest in hydraulic fracking, apart from North America • Introduction of floating LNG (FLNG) • R&D into methane hydrates INNOVATING TO ZERO Big Wind Power • Rising adoption and deployment of big wind turbines, particularly for offshore • New turbines are in the > 5MW range Solar Energy Heat Pumps • Advances in compressor technology and the rising cost of heating is encouraging adoption of heat pumps ZERO CARBON EMISSIONS! • Commercial attractiveness is highest for Li-based batteries • Introduction of distributed energy storage • Increasing adoption of rooftop solar, driven by incentives • Solar energy is also enabling mobility Biomass Energy • Incentives for renewable heating is encouraging adoption for pellet fuels 11
  12. 12. Technology Developments in Natural Gas Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) What Is Floating Liquefied Natural Gas? • Is a recent development in the LNG field, where offshore floating facilities produce, liquefy, and store LNG and transport it directly to international markets • Enable the exploitation of remote offshore resources, which were economically not viable before Market Impact 12 • FLNG offers significant time and costs savings, as extensive transfer systems can be eliminated • Considered as one of the biggest advances in the LNG sector in the last decade Ongoing FLNG Projects • World’s largest FLNG facility (5.3 mtpa) is being built by Royal Dutch Shell. Known as the Prelude, it will begin operations off the coast of Western Australia in 2017 • Petronas is also building its first FLNG, a 1.2 mtpa facility, scheduled to be ready for start-up by end of 2015, and is planning for a second 1.5 mtpa FLNG facility
  13. 13. Technology Developments in Energy Storage Lithium-Based Batteries What are Lithium-Based Batteries? • Next generation lithium-based batteries include advanced lithium-ion batteries, lithium sulfur batteries, and lithium-air/lithium oxygen • Lithium-ion is currently reaching the limits of the technology, hence the intense research on alternative lithium-based chemistries Market Impact 13 • Lithium-ion remains the dominant lithium-based battery technology from low to high energy applications • Lithium-sulfur batteries will likely be commercialized after 2015. Targeted markets include electric vehicles, energy storage and military applications Technology Challenges • For high energy applications, the US DOE has set a target of $250 per kilowatt-hour, which has yet to be met by any of the commercially available batteries today • Current energy densities are insufficient to meet both volume and weight targets for vehicle applications
  14. 14. Timeline for Technology Development and Deployment 2015 • Launching of first FLNG facility by Petronas 2016 • Commercialization of Li-S batteries 2017 2014 • Vestas’ 8MW turbine comes online • China to emerge as the biggest installer of solar PV 14 2017 • Shell Prelude to begin operations 2018 • Energy storage costs targeted to be cut in half
