TechnologyCatalogue.com Seeks Strong Partnerships with Industry Associations

TechnologyCatalogue.com views industry associations as a strategic partner in reaching a wider network of technology end-users, suppliers and deployment partners. 

Their annual or semi-annual gatherings have proven to strengthen connection, commitment and knowledge sharing among members. Nonetheless, having another venue to connect and share knowledge 24/7, regardless of where their members are, holds great value, especially in times where there is a blurring line between online and offline communities.

With this in mind, TechnologyCatalogue.com Co-Founder and CEO Erik Nijveld shares in this Q&A blog how we would like to collaborate with industry associations.

Geothermal Technologies in the Spotlight

Geothermal Technologies in the Spotlight

Geothermal energy is ground heat stored in the earth's crust. To unlock geothermal energy, technical challenges need to be addressed that are similar to technical challenges for the exploration and production of oil and gas. As such, technology transfer is often seen as a cross-over between the two energy sectors. 

For this month’s Technologies in the Spotlight, we are showcasing geothermal solutions that were also used and deployed by oil and gas companies. Scroll through the technologies and check their technology pages to know more.

Robotics and the Energy Transition by Adam Serblowski

Robotics and the Energy Transition by Adam Serblowski

Robotics technology and artificial intelligence (AI), has been a major ingredient in the oil and gas industry’s success in bringing down costs and increasing efficiency in their operations. It has also significantly improved the safety culture in its key processes, especially when maintaining assets in or involving hard-to-reach areas such as storage tanks, offshore platforms, etc. 

Now that the world is looking to transition to renewable energy, will robotics technology have the same key role and great contribution to the efficiency improvements, and consequently cost reduction in this industry?

Making serendipity less serendipitous

"Making serendipity less serendipitous"

A different, more inclusive future awaits exhibitions

By Erik Nijveld, Co-Founder & CEO of TechnologyCatalogue.com.

Conferences and exhibitions in major industries have been viewed for years as effective venues to build and reconnect with your network, learn new insights into the industry, and seek potential leads. COVID-19 has prevented or seriously limited the majority of  face-to-face conferences in 2020 and 2021, but they are fortunately coming back as the health risks brought by the global pandemic have been contained and effectively managed. Face-to-face conferences are back, but the entire networking, knowledge-sharing and lead generation landscapes have changed forever.

Technology Deployment: How to get it done and maximise outcomes!

Technology Deployment: How to get it done and maximise outcomes!

The Energy Industry has been in the centre of intensifying calls for a more sustainable future, putting pressure to transform the current energy system to rely less on fossil fuels amid a steady increase in energy demand. The industry has also been susceptible to volatile political situations around the world. 

These factors have pushed industry players to continue innovating to reduce carbon footprint, improve efficiency and reduce costs. Time and again, technology has been an enabler for all these to happen. 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!
