Technology Management & Commercialisation 

Maximising the impact of technology 

From energy production and conversion through to energy consumption, technology underpins the energy industry and has a crucial role in ensuring economic access to resources. The energy sector is now seeing greater use of advanced technology than ever before. However, taking an idea from basic concept to a commercially successful product is a long, complex and tortuous journey. We can assist you along each stage of the technology maturation process - originate, develop, prototype and scale, and provide you with all necessary support towards a successful commercialisation.  

WSS Energy’s services in technology management and commercialisation address our clients’ most critical challenges in two areas: achieving a fast and customer-oriented technology maturation process and creating strategically aligned R&D organisations that contribute to business value.

maximise the value of the technology

We understand that wherever we join our client’s technology management journey, success in R&D is always measured in technology sales or market access. For this reason, we consider commercialisation throughout the technology management process. Prior to the establishment of a commercial entity or technology sales channel we help clients to plan for: 

  • Customer and End-User Group Specification

  • Strategic Partnerships

  • Route-to-Market Strategy

  • Pricing Strategy

  • Technology Transfer and IP Evaluation


Technology Scouting & Competitiveness 
look outwards to stimulate internal innovation

We believe in solution-based technology scouting that focuses on business and customer needs. While providing a glimpse of innovation trends, technology shifts, and start-ups that have the potential to impact the industry - technology scouting exercises only become truly useful when there is no ambiguity on ‘what to scout’ and a strong connection to well-defined business needs.

Technology Strategy

Companies need to periodically re-evaluate their technology strategies to redefine what, why and how to innovate - and more often - who to innovate with.

We help our clients understand the market and technology development landscape, identify differentiating and competitive R&D areas for their investment, clarify the role of R&D and interfaces with other functions,  articulate the source of innovation using a portfolio approach and build roadmaps for implementation – all to create a business-driven R&D strategy that contributes to your overall success.

Market & Customer Engagement

Targeted and in-depth interview programmes with the industry are a key component of our research. Structured, semi-structured, or narrative interviews are carried out to delve deeply into attitudes, behaviours and experiences on our client’s topic of interest. Utilising our well-established global energy network, we hand-pick the most suitable professionals to ensure the best quality of information and up-to-date business & market insights.
