Climate change, a growing world population and an increasing world’s electrification have started to spark major changes in our living habits and the adoption of sustainable behaviors.
Sustainable development is defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
Our Sustainable Future theme will capture the growth (estimated above 20% on average) in all industries benefiting from the sustainable development of our planet.
We invest in pure players in renewable energies, energy storage, smart transportation, water & wastewater treatment, the digitalization of energy systems and integration of smart technologies.
Electric Vehicle market is projected to benefit from a significant growth in the coming years (CAGR of 22.5%).
Several industries will be affected:
EVs act as batteries with bidirectional flow of energy from and to the grid:
At any instant, 95% of all cars are parked and unused. Car batteries can be used to store electrical energy and give it back to the grid when needed. V2G revenue can offset an average 10% of total cost of EV ownership
The traditional grid is facing a multitude of challenges that can be outlined in the following categories:
A network of integrated microgrids. By 2040, 11B smart appliances are expected to be deployed in the smart grid worldwide. Provide 185 GW of system flexibility and save $270B in electricity infrastructure.
