A balanced view of new technology evolution

John M. Robertson, Slobodan Petrovic

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Emerging technologies are essential contributors to the future energy and economic roadmap. Although their technology and associated engineering are well-represented in academic programs, the factors that can promote or hinder widespread adoption are invariably given less emphasis. A quantitative process has been developed to demonstrate progress of alternative energy sources towards market maturity. It has been tested in a number of courses and the paper provides guidance on its use, pitfalls, typical results and options for development. The cases covered are batteries and portable fuel cells with non-volatile memory used as a consumer product benchmark.
