Major acceleration in clean innovation is needed to meet net-zero emissions.
Improved efficiency & clean energy are fundamental for achieving climate goals, but there are large portions of emissions that will require the use of other technologies. Many of these emissions come from sectors where the technology options for reducing them are limited – such as shipping, trucks, aviation and heavy industries like steel, cement and chemicals. Decarbonising these sectors will largely demand the development of new technologies not yet in use.
Developing & optimising technologies or systems to deliver targeted outcomes absorbs a great deal of time & finite resources, understandably this is the core focus for many innovators.
However, it is vital for successful investment & deployment that innovators hold an in-depth knowledge of their market(s), not only to quantify the scale of market opportunity but also to clearly understand the technical, commercial, & regulatory market expectations. Without a reliable evidence base an innovator may find their solutions misaligned, up take is troublesome or there is lack of investor confidence.
Is your innovation correctly aligned with this market expectation? how are you positioned against your competitors? are you confident with price points?
