Investing in Automation

Oct 7, 2022

Resisting automation is no longer an option – so the attention of the world’s C-Suite is turning from the question of ROI to three fundamentals… what kind of robotics and automation should I pursue, how can automation make my business more resilient, and how do I make my business ready for automation, autonomy and their successful scaling?

HBx, the tiny green dot that could spur the air industry towards net zero

Jul 6, 2022

Decarbonising aviation is a herculean task. Even an aircraft as fuel efficient as Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner uses 30 tonnes of kerosene to fly across the Atlantic. Batteries can’t be expected to achieve the power to weight ratio needed to replace this fuel. For all the interest in green hydrogen and related synthetic fuels it will be decades before a truly zero-carbon airliner can be expected to be carrying passengers.
