Multifunctionality is the future for polymer composites

Multifunctionality is the future for polymer composites

The key next iteration for fiber reinforced polymer products will be the concept of multifunctionality. This is the idea of making a structural part carry out additional role(s) beyond their current primary mechanical task - the market for smart composite material is forecast to exceed 5 kilotons by 2029.

Massless Energy: Structure Becomes Lighter

Massless Energy: Structure Becomes Lighter

This is a technological megatrend. Dumb load-bearing metal structures move to plastic and composite and incorporate energy harvesting and storage material - massless energy. Indeed you could call some of it negative mass energy. Goodbye components-in-a-box.

Storm survival of wave energy systems

Storm survival of wave energy systems

There are two opposing views on storm survival by the new forms of sea power that are mobile and need no massive concrete and steel infrastructure unlike massive river dams, tidal barrages a offshore conventional wind towers.

Airborne Wind Energy 2018 Survey Results and Forecast

Airborne Wind Energy 2018 Survey Results and Forecast

AWE should be seen as part of a bigger picture. The next generation of zero emission electricity producing technologies has no huge steel and concrete infrastructure, so it can have much less cost and installation time and making it redeployable.
