Boston, MA, June 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Boston, June 13, 2017 - President Trump’s energy agenda’s strongly positive rhetoric around boosting oil and gas production and revitalizing the coal industry will only go so far, as economics in both industries play a larger role. Despite Trump’s political agenda, his actual influence will have an overall moderate impact in the U.S. energy landscape, according to Lux Research, a leading provider of intelligence services, helping clients drive growth through technology innovation. “Trump remains committed to his America First Energy Plan with a focus on boosting oil and gas production and revitalizing the coal industry, but that doesn’t necessarily translate to the path of the industry,” said Yuan-Sheng Yu, senior analyst and a lead author of the report, America-First Energy: How Trump’s Energy Agenda Will Impact Technology Deployment. “Clearly Trump’s policies follow the overarching theme of fossil fuels, but these policies do not mean an end to quickly-emerging renewables.” Lux analysts examined Trump’s statements and actions in five segments of the energy landscape – oil and gas, renewable fuels, coal, renewables and storage, and offshore wind – to determine how the Trump administration may impact domestic energy. The findings revealed: The report titled, America-First Energy: How Trump’s Energy Agenda Will Impact Technology Deployment, is part of the Lux Research Alternative Fuels, Distributed Generation, Energy Storage, Exploration and Production, and Solar intelligence service.

Boston, MA, May 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BOSTON, MA – May 11 – The two leading thin-film solar manufacturers, First Solar and Solar Frontier, represent a combined manufacturing capacity of 4 GW. While they do not pose a short-term challenge to crystalline silicon players’ market dominance, ongoing innovations will ensure thin-film remains a significant player, according to Lux Research. Of the two, First Solar is far bigger, with expertise in utility-scale systems and a new large-format module design that will help maintain its gigawatt-scale presence in utility-scale systems, as deployment grows in emerging markets. Solar Frontier has gradually diversified its business away from its home market of Japan and is making steps towards a rooftop building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) product. “Both Solar Frontier and First Solar are moving forward to remain competitive with crystalline silicon. While First Solar will remain the thin-film leader, Solar Frontier has exhibited a willingness to form joint ventures to extend its scale,” said Tyler Ogden, Lux Research analyst and lead author of the report titled, “Tier-One Technology Tracker: Charting the Momentum of Thin-Film Leaders Solar Frontier and First Solar.” Lux Research analysts compared Solar Frontier and First Solar, evaluating the two companies’ varied approaches, strengths and weaknesses. Among their findings: The report, titled “Tier-One Technology Tracker: Charting the Momentum of Thin-Film Leaders Solar Frontier and First Solar,” is part of the Lux Research Solar Intelligence service.

Boston, MA, May 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BOSTON, MA – May 18 – The ongoing digital revolution has the potential to disrupt the building and construction industry, bringing significant savings in time and cost, and perhaps superior quality as well, according to Lux Research. Technologies including advanced prefabrication, augmented reality, building information modeling (BIM) systems, and even automated construction are converging, representing an opportunity to automate and revolutionize the construction industry. “Digital technology can not only improve construction, but change the industry structure as well,” said Arij van Berkel, Lux Research director and lead author of the report titled, “The Industrial and Digital Revolution in Building and Construction.” “A company that manages to create one coherent workflow using all of the digital developments together will seriously disrupt the construction industry and may well become the world’s first truly dominant construction multinational.” Lux Research analysts studied diverse digital technologies applicable to the building and construction industry, and scored each on a dozen criteria. Among their findings: The report, titled “The Industrial and Digital Revolution in Building and Construction” is part of the Lux Research Intelligence service.
