InnoEnergy, Europe’s sustainable energy engine supported by the EIT, has launched a series of reports which analyse global trends in decarbonising heat and transport. The reports show Europe leading on heat with the largest deployment of heat pumps globally at 6.7 million installed, while Asia Pacific leads the market in electric vehicles, and North America dominates in smart buildings.

In Europe interoperable traffic management systems, smart grid services, trigeneration and waste heat technologies are highlighted as the region’s key focuses. Leading innovators in Europe include Bosch, Daimler and Siemens. In terms of patents, the reports identify growing activity in the Asia Pacific region, with China submitting thousands of patents a year while Europe lags behind. Top electric transport innovators include Toyota and Hyundai.

The reports, researched in collaboration with Clarivate Analytics, provide investors and innovators with comprehensive business intelligence on budding heat and transport technologies to help make successful investments decisions and pick the right partners to collaborate with. Through providing the market with consolidated rankings and insight in critical areas including patents, research and development and financial health, along with analysis on quality, demographic trends and region outlooks the reports are a major piece in the puzzle for accelerating the clean energy transition and improving air quality.

The reports cover 11 topics within heat and transport including electric vehicles, charging infrastructure and intelligent traffic management, alternative transport fuels including hydrogen, residential heat electrification, integrated heat systems, building management and materials, and waste heat.

Announcing the reports, Diego Pavia, CEO of InnoEnergy, says, “This is an exciting new initiative for InnoEnergy, and represents another step forward in tackling the global issue of air pollution. We believe that with the right support and investment for the right technologies, decarbonisation of heat and transport can have a hugely positive impact on air quality at both a global and local level. From global warming through to city smog, this is an issue we are committed to tackling head on.”

“And now, not only are we supporting start-ups and business growth directly, but we are also leveraging our expertise to stimulate growth and investment in the wider market,” Pavia adds.
