Online Sales to Drive Half of Retail Growth in Western Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 agosto 2018

Over the next five years, online sales will drive almost half of retail growth in Western Europe. Italy and Spain will see the fastest online sales growth.By 2023, 21% of non-grocery retail sales will be online, up from 13% in 2017. Grocery will be one of the fastest-growing online retail categories.This promising outlook emerges from a new forecast released today by Forrester. The analysis details growth for 22 product categories across 17 countries in Western Europe, with historical online category sales going back to 2002.“We are seeing an increasing consumer confidence that is driving retail sales growth,” says Principal Analyst Michael O’Grady. “In 2017, the European Union economy grew at its fastest pace in a decade. Western European retail sales will grow by 2.8% in 2018. In addition to the consumer confidence, employment rates haven’t been seen so high since the 2008 banking crisis. As expected, online is playing an ever-increasing role in the mix.”Online-only retailers grew their sales faster than the online retail market as they drive much of their sales from marketplaces.“Marketplaces help consumers to research and buy products but also provide payment and fulfilment services to retailers to allow them to expand both domestically and internationally,” explains Mr O’Grady. “Amazon continues to grow faster that the online retail markets across much of Western Europe. We are also seeing AliExpress grow its presence in Europe, most notably in Spain and Italy.”
Forrester expects that more and more retailers will partner with and sell through marketplaces in the future as the boundaries between physical retail stores and marketplaces start to blur.
Meanwhile, many brick-and-mortar retailers, notably in the UK, saw online sales grow and offline sales contract. One-third of UK non-grocery retailing will be online by 2023.To talk to our analysts to understand where the retail market is going, and which strategies companies should put in place to drive revenue growth, please contact Chiara Carella, Public Relations Europe,

NanoFlowcell: Electric cars with 48-volt flow cell drive are the future

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 27 gennaio 2017

bildmaterialLondon und Kilchberg, January 2017 – nanoFlowcell Holdings announced in October 2016 that it has successfully achieved variable controllability for flow cells. Following extensive testing with the QUANTiNO 48VOLT, the company now confirms that the redesigned nanoFlowcell system architecture for electric vehicles is suitable for (series) production. By being able to vary fuel cell control directly and thus dispense with the previously necessary supercapacitors (supercaps), nanoFlowcell Holdings has made important progress in flow cell research, enabling a significant reduction in the cost and weight of drive systems for electric cars.Following the long sought-after technological breakthrough in directly variable control of flow cells achieved by nanoFlowcell Holdings last October, the redesigned low-voltage flow cell drive without supercapacitors has been undergoing extensive testing in the QUANTiNO 48VOLT. The benefits of the flow-cell based drive technology compared with other electric drive systems i.e. with lithium-ion batteries or hydrogen fuel cells are remarkable, particularly in respect of power, range, environmental compatibility, cost-effectiveness and safety.“The average range of current electric cars stands around the low three-digit mark, with most far from able to sustain motorway speeds for extended periods. Moreover, no car manufacturer is currently making money with electric vehicles – too expensive to produce and sales incentives too high. With the QUANTiNO, we want to show that electric mobility can be different,” explains Nunzio La Vecchia, Chief Technology Officer of nanoFlowcell Holdings. “The QUANTiNO 48VOLT offers not only the range and speed of a regular car with an internal combustion engine, our flow cell vehicle is also more economical and environmentally friendly than any other electric vehicle on the market. It therefore comes as no surprise that our flow cell drive is making a big impression on expert automotive OEMs – at the end of the day, our bildmaterialnanoFlowcell technology opens up completely new horizons in the field of electric vehicle drives.”It has previously not been possible to vary the control of flow cells directly, meaning they needed buffer storage, so-called supercapacitors, to be able to manage the flow of current for regulating driving speed. However, supercapacitors are very expensive and comparatively heavy. The breakthrough with the new low-voltage flow cell drive in the QUANTiNO 48VOLT is that it will no longer require supercapacitors. Electric vehicles driven by nanoFlowcell are not only safe, environmentally compatible and efficient to run, they will also be considerably more cost-effective to produce in future than comparable electric vehicles with a lithium-ion battery or hydrogen fuel cell.For widespread implementation of electric mobility, these are important technological and economic prerequisites that have so far not be met by any electric vehicle concepts currently on the market.“We are seeing an extremely high level of interest from the OEM and supplier industries in our flow cell technology and the concept we have developed for a low-voltage flow cell drive,” says La Vecchia. “We are involved in active dialogue with the industry and I can well imagine that we will realise the new concept for the nanoFlowcell® 48VOLT low-voltage drive in a standalone QUANT prototype in collaboration with an industry partner.” La Vecchia intends to announce more details on the new low-voltage prototype with flow cell drive soon. The company founder and inventor of nanoFlowcell® remains guarded on the status of negotiations with the industry as discussions on the matter have yet to be concluded. (photo: Bildmaterial)

How technology will drive the next wave of circular and service-based economics

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 28 gennaio 2016

By Rob van den Heuvel, Senior Vice President Global Asset Management at DLL. Business leaders today face unprecedented challenges, in part due to the astonishing rate of technological advancement. The main topic of discussion at the World Economic Forum in Davos2 in January this year revolved around the impact of digital technology and the Internet of Things, which is set to revolutionize the way businesses serve their customers. In this new age, there are great commercial opportunities for those that utilize this new technology effectively. At the moment, much of this potential is being lost because the data is not being fully utilized. However, if businesses do draw on it effectively, the new industrial wave could generate up to $11.1 trillion a year by 2025, according to McKinsey. Harvard professor Michael Porter, a globally recognized authority on competitiveness, believes the Internet of Things is reshaping business and society. The rise of smart, digitally connected products will, he writes in Harvard Business Review, “generate real-time readings that are unprecedented in their variety and volume. Data now stands on par with people, technology, and capital as a core asset of the corporation and in many businesses is perhaps becoming the decisive asset.”While technology might unleash a new industrial revolution, we are also living in an age where our economic activities are threatening the planet on which we all depend. The great challenge, therefore, is for business leaders also to develop models that draw less and less on finite, non-renewable resources such as metals and minerals and reduces carbon emissions, offsetting two of the biggest environmental challenges we face: resource scarcity and global warming. There is a way forward which addresses both these issues and could help businesses to both engage their customers and develop a more environmentally friendly approach to commerce known as the circular economy, in which goods are designed to be recycled, reused, refurbished or remanufactured, extending their product life cycles. The circular economy concept, informed by such ideas as cradle to cradle, is also about driving towards a low carbon economy and utilizing healthy materials to make products, all of which lends itself to creating positive closed loop manufacturing systems.
This is the ideal. But how do we get there? The answer could be through developing service-based models, facilitated by servitization, in which customers demand smarter, added value services. Instead of selling an asset in a one-off transaction, the supplier provides a service such as selling the service of light rather than supplying lighting products or providing on-going medical scans rather than a scanner. This model is already familiar in some sectors such as office technology.
But the revolutionary shift is that more and more suppliers can go down this road. Porter describes how the service-based model, underpinned by the Internet of Things, will boost customer engagement: “The ability to remain connected to the product and track how it’s being used shifts the focus of a company’s customer relationship from selling—often a predominantly onetime transaction—to maximizing the customer’s value from the product over time. This opens up important new requirements and opportunities for marketing and sales.” They will maintain ownership of the product and will often be responsible, as part of the deal, for servicing it during use. The Internet of Things means that most suppliers will be able to monitor and keep in constant touch with their equipment digitally, facilitating an enhanced service: they can optimize the equipment, predict problems before they occur and fix them without breakdowns and radically improve minute by minute, their understanding of customer behaviour and needs. The second thing this service model does is enable the producer to maintain control over the assets in service and plan for their return and next life cycle. They will be incentivized to make things that are durable and perform well and that can be remanufactured, refurbished or recycled at the end of their first lifecycle. The process is, therefore, both profitable, competitive and environmentally responsible. Peter Lacy and Jakob Rutqvist, authors of the new book, Waste to Wealth, see such service-based models as one of the clear routes to the circular economy and describe how manufacturers should, “consider the entire product lifecycle when setting strategy”. In this scenario, products “must be designed for optimal use, maintenance, reuse, remanufacture, and recycling to avoid issues such as fast quality degradation, short lifespan, low utilization rate, and low recycling/return, which can directly impact the company’s bottom line.”
Putting together these deals is, however, more complex than a straightforward sale of an asset. First, you need to decide on the model to be used such as pay for use, leasing and rental, and then find ways to agree on terms that are viable for both parties, and enable the supplier to take back the asset at the end of use and recapture its value in a second or third life cycle. This is an area that DLL has been heavily involved in and from our experience, we can see that the right financial solutions will drive forward these new customer-centric circular economy models. Indeed, Lacy and Rutqvist explain that companies thinking of adopting a service-based model may “need to think creatively about financing, potentially collaborating with financial institutions such as banks and insurers to make it practically viable.” At DLL we are seeing that financial institutions can do more, working as collaborators and partners in the journey to circularity. Lacy and Rutqvist add that more than 80 percent of the service based-models they have studied are “blending it with one or more circular business models”, often paired with Product Lifecycle Extension models to repair or upgrade products. Indeed, we have built a Lifecycle Asset Management division, which facilitates revenue generating second and third life refurbishment business models. It is here that we have been expanding our capabilities to provide asset data, giving our customers more insights into the usage of their assets through the whole product lifecycle. This service-based model helps customers reduce the costs of ownership, get more efficient usage of their assets, and is beneficial for business and the environment. In this brave new world, financial solutions like our own lifecycle asset management division can provide the wiring for this new infrastructure: the Internet of Things and service-based models linked to the circular economy. And this is driving a revolutionary shift in the way we do business.

Drive Now Flexible London Carsharing Expand Fleet with 30 EVs

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 Maggio 2015

london-centralLondon, UK Today saw the launch of 30 BMW i3’s into London’s DriveNow carsharing service, the BMW / Sixt joint venture offering one-way flexible carsharing in the North London boroughs of Islington, Hackney, Haringey and Waltham Forest. Following their launch in December 2014, this takes their growing fleet total to 270 vehicles being used across the boroughs, offering residents and businesses a viable alternative to use of private cars with it’s on demand, pay per use model.
Today’s announcement means that over 11 percent of the fleet are full electric vehicles, as part of the exclusively BMW / Mini fleet of vehicles, making it London’s largest fleet of shared electric vehicles in a car club. Using the i3 will be a great move for the London carsharing customer, not least because of the emission free driving, but also the chance to test the new technology. The i3 is widely regarded as one of the most innovative EV’s on the market today, built with urban mobility at the heart of its development, and could become a truly important London carsharing vehicle as DriveNow grows. There are already over 10,000 members of the service in London alone, who will be given the opportunity to use the vehicles at competitive prices, in turn promoting the benefits of EVs to an increasing member base and local residents. There are several reasons that DriveNow have chosen to use the i3 in the carsharing fleet. As well as to improve the customer offer, with the new technology and highly acclaimed vehicles, which are also exempt from congestion charge (allowing more use cases), it is an opportunity to increase the marketing of the service, and gain operational insight into the use of EVs in their carsharing fleet. The marketing potential is not just related to the zero emissions from the vehicles and leveraging the new BMW model, but also to promote the benefits and potential application of electric vehicles to their customers of tomorrow. As more DriveNow customers understand how to use an EV in London, the more likely they will be to go and purchase one when they need their own private vehicle, is the theory, which may be more likely to be a BMW vehicle. It also educates Londoners on how to use the vehicles, a necessary intervention to drive behaviour change in cities to overcome range anxiety in particular, as well as operational concerns such as how to use the charging infrastructure. Given free driving credit will be offered to customers in return for charging the vehicles at the end of a rental, there is a good incentive to do so. Finally but importantly, it provides the opportunity to DriveNow to fully understand the operational pros and cons of using EVs in their flexible carsharing fleet. It is well documented that EVs currently cost more than the average combustion engine vehicle. Indeed, the list price of an entry level i3 vehicle at the time of writing is £30,980, compared to ~£20,000 for a BMW 1 series or £16,000 for a Mini Cooper (the other vehicles that make up the majority of the DriveNow fleet). Whilst this makes the business case more challenging, the main concern in London at present exists around the charging infrastructure. Of course, taking 4-6 hours to recharge wipes out a considerable proportion potential utilisation, but more importantly complications with the maintenance and contractual obligations in the transfer from TfL to private operator IER has led to as much as 35 percent of the charging stations unavailable due to faults. Given the fact that IER also operate carsharing firms in France, each London carsharing operator including DriveNow will be seeking clarifications from the local authorities as to the access and payment model to ensure a fair playing field is achieved. What is clear though from this announcement and the continuation of EV carsharing schemes around the globe, is that EV carsharing offers carsharing providers and particularly OEMs a great opportunity to leverage zero emission vehicles in high frequency urban use, and gives the city policy makers the potential to begin a shift from combustion engine to EV fleets by educating a wide pool of customers (carsharing members) with a small fleet of vehicles. Only a few months after launch, DriveNow have over 37 members to each of their vehicles, and exceed 100 members to vehicles in their developed market of Germany, thus using the opportunity to showcase their new EV to as many potential future EV customers as possible. With over 13 percent of global carsharing vehicles being electric already, Frost & Sullivan expect this to exceed 30 percent of carsharing fleets by 2020 given an increased entry from OEMs and support from city authorities to deliver EVs in carsharing fleets, such as parking/charging infrastructure incentives for example.
