The Stocktake of InfraTech Use Cases is Reference Note 1 under the G20 Riyadh InfraTech Agenda, which was endorsed by the G20 Finance Ministers in July 2020. It provides a stock take of InfraTech Use Cases providing illustrative examples of applications of technology in infrastructure and highlights benefits, including application to COVID-19 and other pandemics. This page provides a description of each use case, categorised by its relationship to the InfraTech Agenda Elements.
The figures below show the prevalence of different technologies in different sectors across transport, energy, water and waste and in different stages across strategy and planning, project delivery, operations and maintenance and renewal and disposal.
Across our dataset, 71% of the InfraTech opportunity lies in the operations and maintenance stage and opportunity lies across all sectors more uniformly.
Across all sectors and stages, sensors and IOT, analytics and AI and application technologies are the most prevalent. This is unsurprising given that these technologies are typically inter-dependent across the digital value chain.
During project delivery, contech, automation and digital twins also become prominent. One technology that wasn’t very prominent was distributed ledger technology, representing as relevant to only 1% of the operations and maintenance use cases.
