TRANSPORTATION REVOLUTION SYMPOSIUM

Transportation as we know it is going to be transformed over the next decade. While electrification is advancing and gradually replacing internal combustion engines, automation and driverless vehicles are considered a significant transformation of transportation. While much of the focus of the public has been on the high profile tests of passenger vehicles and their high profile accidents, a quiet transformation to automation has been happening in the automation of medium and heavy duty freight as well as industrial fleets.

Energy Infrastructure Symposium Banner Image

ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE SYMPOSIUM

The last summer in Texas has been an exemplar to the challenges we face with the energy infrastructure. The aging and “old energy” generation infrastructure is increasingly being retired and much of the reliance of base-load power generation from these sources is becoming ineffective. In the meantime, the new generation and storage infrastructure is displaying the classic early technology challenges and not as reliable and causing significant economic impact.
