COVID-19 resulted in drastic changes to ways companies and their employees deal with their clients, mostly resorting to online interactions as restrictions in several countries do not allow for physical events such as meetings, conferences and exhibitions. Although the vaccines offer hope, it is not likely that people will be as comfortable attending live events as in the past especially that current situation exposed them to alternative, sometimes more effective and convenient, ways of doing business.
Last year, both the number of technologies and visitors on our platform and partner portals more than doubled compared to the previous year. This is great news for both suppliers and end-users as it means more exposure for technologies on one hand and more choices of technologies on the other.
In this blog we listed the 10 most viewed technologies on our platform in 2020. Enjoy!
The world’s business environment has changed drastically in the last 10 months. Covid-19 is limiting all organisations’ connectivity and people’s mobility, on top of challenges it also poses on costs and risks associated in every business. Conferences, conventions and exhibitions are either cancelled, postponed or moved online. Business travels are minimised and quality face-to-face meetings become limited. We asked over 500 energy operators & contractors in the UK, and about half of them gave us insights on what are currently the most relevant industry themes and operational challenges.

The Energy industry has truly pushed the boundaries over time, and delivered projects that were considered unthinkable not too long ago. Technology has truly been an enabler. Yet, despite the undeniable role that technology has played, it is also clear that there is significant room to further accelerate the speed of technology deployment.
The good news is: technology deployment can be done… faster and with higher chances of success. Read how in this new piece!
This blog will explain how success can be replicated by looking at companies from other industries that have relevant or similar business concerns. When it comes to replicating what your neighbours have done, keep in mind that you are not limited to companies that are active in the same industry as you are. Other industries can offer very powerful ideas --- there are differences in some aspects, but there are also commonalities. Read our new article to learn more about X-Industry techs!
The number of technologies that are available on the market is overwhelming, and new technologies become available every single day. Selecting the right technology for your business may seem like finding a needle in the haystack!
In this blog, we share some insights on how you can address this challenge, no matter how large or small your company is.
In one of our previous blogs, we revealed a few secrets to boost your technology with the Tech Positioning Programme, based on >20 years of technology deployment experience. The programme helps you to identify strengths and opportunities to improve the overall offering, and to make it as attractive as possible to the broadest appropriate customer base.
People asked us the question whether the Tech Positioning Programme is a one-off event, or whether it needs to be repeated at regular intervals. It is the latter, and in this blog we explain why.
Technological advances have enabled the industry to produce natural gas at never-seen-before rates by maximizing the potential from assets and ensuring optimum flow rates across the field. However, these pose plenty of challenges to match the demand at sales point – constantly fluctuating oil and gas price, production inefficiencies, cost pressures squeezing the margins and limited personnel on the field.
The uncertainty in the behavior of the challenges needs a connected system that helps in making dynamic decisions to suit the situation. For consistent and faster problem recognition, AI-driven digital twin is proposed to optimize the production of the gas gathering network.

When an Oil/Gas or Petrochemical facility is in its operating phase it will require periodic maintenance activities throughout its lifetime. One of the most impactful recurring activities are the planned shutdowns (‘turnarounds’) that are typically conducted at intervals varying from 1-6 years.

TechnologyCatalogue.com is growing fast. We’re rapidly going towards 500 technologies, and already >35,000 unique users have made use of the platform to select technologies that can improve business performance.
Besides the free subscription for suppliers, we also offer paid services. One of the services that we provide is ‘Market Insights & Analytics’.
The analytics give you powerful insights that can help you maximise the market potential of your technology. Learn more in this article!
In one of our recent blogs, we shared three tips for Operators to increase the chances that technology gets deployed and replicated.
Multiple people responded to the blog, and indicated that it would be great to receive a monthly e-mail summary of new additions to TechnologyCatalogue.com, such that it can support items 2 and 3 as per above. This is now something that we have added to our services menu.

Steinar’s practical guide is based on his experience over the years with radical innovation in Equinor and other companies. The book sums up the knowledge he has gained from this journey in a story-like format, emphasizing the importance of taking a systematic approach to radical innovation. Although TechnologyCatalogue.com does not focus on radical innovation, there is still a seamless fit with what we do. In this blog, we will explain what the link is!
The UK’s energy sector is changing more rapidly than ever before, driven by societal expectations and today’s challenging economic environment. Besides, the need for accelerated technology deployment has increased further as a result of the current low oil and gas prices as well as the current COVID-19 pandemic. To help address these challenges, the UK Energy Technology Platform was recently launched. In this article, we talk to Colin Black, Founder and Owner of Carjon-NRG, an Aberdeen headquartered Technology Deployment Service Company, delivering energy innovation around the world. Together we discuss the UK Energy Technology Platform, its functionalities, how it can address business needs and how it is a revolutionary asset for the Energy Industry - keeping in mind the challenges as outlined above!
Country platforms - like the UK Energy Technology Platform – are delivered jointly with local partners that have an extensive network and a solid reputation. Naturally, these local partners share in the success of the platform. Also, it gives them a chance to create visibility for their own technology deployment services to get technologies deployed, this way helping suppliers and end-users to improve business performance...
At TechnologyCatalogue.com, we have made it our mission to help companies find new technologies as easy as finding a restaurant. In addition, contributing to the energy transition is a pillar for our company. Offshore wind represents now a large section in the energy market that more and more players in the field are trusting, being a powerful and effective resource for the good of our economy and the health of our oceans. The Energy world is changing and we are proud to contribute to such a change! Why don’t you have a look at this selection of technologies?
No one would argue with the statement that effective technology deployment is essential to reap the full benefit from technology & innovation efforts. Strangely enough, though, there are very few companies that we know of that have someone who is overall responsible for the technology deployment drive within the company.
Operators naturally hold many of the keys to accelerate the uptake of technology within their organisation, but there are also things that suppliers can do more of, such that the chances increase that technology is getting deployed and replicated by others. In this blog, we want to share 3 tips for suppliers.
