    Batteries powering our residential homes

    ,
    The cost of retail electricity is a hot topic in Australia, exacerbated by more frequent and volatile weather events and a rapid shift from traditional fossil fuels towards renewables. Considering that residential solar panels have reached 20% penetration, and this is set to grow to 50% over time, we believe that they have reached ‘mainstream’ market adoption with steady growth in panel installations likely to continue. As such, the discussion now shifts to the installation of batteries which will further shift the energy supply mix toward renewables in Australia. With the price volatility of retail electricity, there is an increased focus by governments and households on different ways to cut costs across the energy supply chain, from distributors to end users. This report looks at how and when battery technology will be adopted and forecasts the potential impact this could have on the consumption of ‘grid’ electricity.

    Equity crowdfunding in Australia: We have lift-off

    , ,
    Equity crowdfunding has been celebrated as a game-changing alternative to venture capital and traditional business loans but has until recently been off limits to most retail investors. With the lifting of Australian restrictions on who can use equity crowdfunding platforms, there is cautious uptake from consumers and start-ups – with several platforms establishing a clear lead – but the claim of outsize returns will take time to be tested.

    AI in Insurance: Disruption Assured

    , ,
    Artificial intelligence (AI) has enormous potential to disrupt across the data- and process-heavy insurance value chain.

    Telemedicine in Australia

    , ,
    In this report, we provide a brief overview of ‘telemedicine’ and business models associated with provision of telemedicine services along with barriers that may slow down adoption of the online tool. Venture Insights believes that telemedicine will play an important tool in scoping the primary care in Australia- changing the way GPs deliver their services. We believe that the inefficiencies in healthcare, growing health costs and rising demand for quality care lead to a rising need for disruption: tools that can reduce costs while driving access to care.
