Sparking innovation

Do you have an idea or technology that could transform the energy industry? Your idea, product, business model or technology could be what we are looking for.

No single company can develop all of the advanced technologies the industry will need in order to tap increasingly challenging resources and meet growing energy demand. This is why we are working with others to solve complex energy problems faster and more cost-effectively – connecting with creative minds far beyond the boundaries of our company and industry.

We would like to hear from you if you have an original idea – from unproven to ready-to-deploy – that tackles a challenge relevant to our business. We may be able to offer you funding, laboratory and research space, professional coaching, or access to markets and manufacturers – essentially everything your idea or technology needs in order to grow move forward faster.

Discover our innovation programmes below, and which could best meet your needs.
