Internet of Business is a publication focusing specifically on how the Internet of Things age is upon us, and how it is already making businesses of all sizes more efficient, productive and profitable. There is little doubt IoT is already here and changing the way we work; doctors are using wearables to diagnose patients, retailers have beacons to personalise the in-store shopping experience, while manufacturers have sensors in equipment to predict when it is about to break down. Insurers and banks track expensive goods across the world using geolocation and sensor technologies. IoB is your digital home for news and insight around IoT in business. They cover everything from the latest and greatest deployments and the numerous challenges around Big Data, privacy, security, to news from the supply chain world. You can expect to read breaking news, interviews with industry heavyweights and features on IoT and the numerous challenges to adoption.

Energy Storage Journal is the only English language, international magazine that reports on the missing link in the renewables revolution that is quite likely going to transform the fortunes of the entire planet. Energy storage. Although the power generated by solar and wind sources is getting cheaper by the day — and in many places is less expensive than burning fossil fuels — it requires storage to become a truly useful force for good.
Energy Storage Journal tracks the main themes running across this entire sector — from the integration of renewables into the grid and related issues around this that such as peak levelling, frequency regulation or load shaving through to how distributed energy can be made useful in the commercial and industrial segment and the burgeoning use of storage for the residential markets.

The European Alternative Fuels Observatory is a European Commission initiative to provide alternative fuels statistics and information (electricity, hydrogen, natural gas, LPG).
The short-term focus is on battery electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles while natural gas and other alternative fuels will also be covered in a second stage. The Observatory will help support the market development of alternative fuels in the EU and be a key tool for the implementation of Directive 2014/94/EU on the deployment of recharging and refueling stations.
The Observatory will integrate all relevant statistical data concerning vehicles and infrastructure, relevant legislation, support and incentives programmes, periodical analyses and general information like news and publications. The EAFO will also deal with L-category vehicles (LEVs), such as electric bicycles, scooters, motorcycles, quadricycles and other LEVs.
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is the voice of the energy storage community, actively promoting the use of energy storage in Europe and worldwide. It supports the deployment of energy storage as an indispensable instrument within the framework of the European energy and climate policy to deliver services to, and improve the flexibility of, the European energy system. EASE seeks to build a European platform for sharing and disseminating energy storage-related information and supports the transition towards a sustainable, flexible and stable energy system in Europe.
