The Commercialisation Department of a leading UK university commissioned Urban Foresight to map the value chains, emerging opportunities and key players in the electric vehicles, carbon capture & storage, and offshore wind sectors.

A comprehensive desk study was undertaken by Urban Foresight and complemented by both our internal knowledge and insights drawn from our extensive global networks. This was pulled together into an expert report which presented a commentary and high-level summary of the key developments and emerging opportunities in these sectors.

A key achievement of the study was to consider the complete ecosystem required to support the development and deployment of these emerging technologies. This extended into considering total systems of infrastructure and related areas such regulation and R&D.

The study provided the University with an enhanced understanding of the landscape of developments and opportunities in these sectors. It included a directory of key stakeholders and contacts which offered the university an opportunity to explore collaborative partnerships and the commercialisation of intelletual property.
