Client: Newfoundland and Labrador Government
The E4tech team was asked to assist the client in developing a strategy for energy innovation support, using oil and gas revenues. This project was conducted with Orion Innovations and a local partner. Phase 1 involved a scan and analysis of the N&L energy sector for innovation opportunities based on various review and screening criteria. The innovation opportunities also considered the uniqueness of the N&L cold, harsh environment. The goal of Phase 1 was to determine strategic areas to focus innovation roadmap development. As a follow-on piece of work, and in light of the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, E4tech were asked to survey oil majors, asking whether any of their health and safety regimes for Canadian deployment were going to significantly change.
