BP names six next-generation technologies that matter for the energy industry

Technology moves so rapidly that new approaches or ideas can emerge – and fade – within short timescales.

This is especially evident in the energy world where the evolution of established technologies, coupled with the increasing influence of digital innovation, together with customer demand and government policies, are changing the way companies operate.

The dual challenge of meeting growing energy demand in the developing world, while working to reduce carbon emissions, is creating a constant stream of ideas with the potential to transform how the world produces and consumes energy. 

For BP, that represents both a threat and an opportunity. The role of the Emerging Technology team, led by Dan Walker, is to keep focused on what is next and evaluate its potential impact on BP.
