This edition of the Energy and Power Systems TOE focuses on innovations in energy storage, home energy optimization through smart meter data, and developments in sold oxide fuel cells. It also covers innovations and developments in smart energy management and energy storage, electric transportation, and related infrastructure and wind inspection solutions. One of the recent trends in the energy storage sector is the use of sulfur as an active material in batteries. Sulfur-based batteries help achieve better performance, reduce size, and also help reduce the material cost associated with the batteries. These batteries can be used in stationary and mobility applications. Sodium sulfur batteries that make use of molten sodium and sulfur are used currently in stationary grid storage applications. Companies are also focusing on developing solutions that analyze data from the smart meter and itemize the energy bill. This will help homeowners take part in demand response programs by optimizing the loads. Low temperature operations in fuel cells enable the use of low cost materials to be used and also help develop fuel cells with prolonged operational life time. 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 (solid state batteries, solar chemical storage 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. Keywords: Solid oxide fuel cells, sodium sulfur batteries, flow batteries, demand response, energy management, electric ferry, wind turbine inspection
