“Disruptive Market Innovation”

May 29th, 2017

 

‘Disruptive Market Innovation’ the category assigned to Naked Energy’s solar product Virtu, in the latest briefing paper by the Grantham Institute and Imperial College.

 

 

Our mission remains to disrupt the $185BN combined solar thermal market and PV market and address the global heating and cooling demand that accounts for half the world’s energy consumption. Virtu is now in trials and getting closer to market. Unlike legacy hybrid (PVT ) products, Virtu can deliver high grade heat (50-90degC) which enables it to unlock the global heating and cooling market and go head to head with premium solar thermal products.

 

“All things smart”

May 17th, 2017

Naked Energy have been selected and sponsored by the Cleantech Group to present today at their Helsinki Cleantech Forum.  The company is pitching to specialist cleantech investors for growth funding to support the commercialisation of Virtu.

 

 

 

 

“Much of today’s industrial landscape would look familiar to a 1967 industrial executive.

 

Equipment has modernized, designs and reliability have improved, but how we power, make, move and do things –on the physical face of it, at least – have not radically changed. Fossil fuels still form over 75% of the global energy mix, EVs represent less than 1% of new sales of passenger vehicles, and GE remains the general industrial behemoth of the world and only surviving company of the Dow Jones 30.

 

Yet, changes are clearly underway and momentum is increasing – with potential to dramatically accelerate in the 2020s – as we continue the transition from a 20th century global industrial order to a 21st century one.

 

The single biggest change our 1967 executive would be amazed by would surely be the power and ubiquity of information and communication technologies. Finland’s Nokia, albeit ultimately the victim of the power of creative destruction, was a key player in the rise of mobile telephony, within the wider rise of the Internet and all things “smart” from the 1990s onwards.

 

2017 is a special year for Finland, its 100th anniversary as an independent nation. In deference to the host of our 2017 Cleantech Forum Europe, this year’s theme is Early Signs of the Next 100 Years: Charting the great, smart industrial transition.

 

Through plenaries, parallel tracks, and our small and informal interactive side sessions, we will go in search of all things smart (assessing how we power, make and move things), and identify the building blocks and enablers of the next 100 years. While no serious attempt can be made to imagine the full 100 years ahead, we are all interested in how the first 1-2 decades may pan out on that transitional journey towards a total and quite radical shake-up of the 1967 industrial landscape.

 

P.S. Why 1967?  It was Finland’s 50th anniversary, but it was also the year that three independently-operating, albeit jointly-owned, companies came together to form Nokia Corporation to focus on four markets: paper, electronics, rubber, and cable.”
