BP has presented its view of six next-generation technologies that matter to the energy industry including blockchain, 3D printing and artificial intelligence. 

BP's Emerging Technology team leader Dan Walker says: “There are hundreds of technologies out there that could impact BP, either positively or negatively, and we’re constantly scanning to identify and track these. We have to evaluate these technologies, analyze their strategic fit to BP and then prioritize them for potential action. Back in 2015, we saw the emergence of battery and fuel cells technologies, while just a couple of years later in 2017 we’ve seen blockchain and next generation wind technology come into focus.”

The next significant technologies on BP's radar are:

Blockchain

Autonomous vehicle technology

3D printing

Artificial intelligence

E-fuels

Wind technology
