Floating a big idea
With a little help from the sun

Bright ideas that lead to new technologies, business models or products can transform the energy industry. Over the coming decades more of these ideas will be needed as society seeks ways to meet growing energy demand with less environmental impact. We work with others within – and way beyond – the boundaries of our industry to spark new ideas and speed up their development and deployment. Our approach to open innovation has boosted exciting new developments.
