2017 Global Blockchain Benchmarking Study

The first global blockchain benchmarking study presents a systematic and comprehensive picture of a rapidly evolving industry, examining how blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) are being used in the public sector and enterprise. The study analysed non-publicly available data gathered from over 200 central banks, other public sector institutions, DLT start-ups, and established companies. Findings from the study include which protocols central banks and are testing (57% of surveyed central banks are experimenting with the Ethereum codebase), targeted use cases, emerging revenue models, timing of deployment, and key challenges.

Storage Technology Development Roadmap 2017

The roadmap is a joint effort between the European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) and the Joint Programme on Energy Storage (JP ES) under the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). Together, EASE and EERA members provide a strong foundation of industrial and research expertise, which allows for a deep and multifaceted insight into the European energy storage sector.

This updated roadmap provides a comprehensive overview of the energy storage technologies being developed in Europe today, with a focus on stationary applications, and identifies the most pressing research, development and demonstration (RD&D) needs in the coming decades.

Lead or Lose: A vision for Europe´s digital future

Digitization is already changing Europe. Whether or not we can leverage its opportunities to foster prosperity, human well-being and sustainability depends on the strategic decisions taken today. Will the continent work together to embrace these opportunities, or will it let this unique chance pass? This is one of the most important decisions Europe can take in the next decade. It will determine which path the continent takes into the digital age shaping the way we all live, work and play. It is high time that Europe took action.

National Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Analysis

This report addresses the fundamental question of how much plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging infrastructure—also known as electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE)—is needed in the United States to support both plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs). It complements ongoing EVSE initiatives by providing a comprehensive analysis of national PEV charging infrastructure requirements. The result is a quantitative estimate for a U.S. network of non-residential (public and workplace)
EVSE that would be needed to support broader PEV adoption. The analysis provides guidance to public and private stakeholders who are seeking to provide nationwide charging coverage, improve the EVSE business case by maximizing station utilization, and promote effective use of private/public infrastructure investments.

Street Smarts: Report of the Commission on the Future of London’s Roads and Streets

The recommendations made in this report will require political courage, investment and a long-term view. But London needs action now to preserve economic and social vitality, and environmental sustainability in the years to come.

Centre for London’s Commission on the Future of London’s Roads and Streets was set up to develop new thinking on what London could do to manage the conflicting pressures on the capital’s surface transport system and public realm, and how it can address the challenges it faces and make the most of its opportunities.
