The Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) Market 2014-2024

LONDON, January 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Report Details Human consumption of fossil fuels is a major source of carbon dioxide (CO2) and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally. In the largest economies of the world, such as the US and China, coal-burning power stations remain responsible for a large volume of electricity generated carbon emissions. Other sources are found in industrial sites and other thermal power plants, such as natural gas fired. These emissions are increasing year on year, leading to concerns over permanent climate change, ocean acidification and air quality changes. A reduction in GHG emissions has since been made essential at international, national and regional policy levels.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
