Regulations codes and standards are at the heart of all engineering. As the world of energy transforms so the need grows to stay ahead of changes to codes and standards and to innovate to develop the optimum response to change.

The energy industry is known for major technological challenges and substantial regulatory and socioeconomic complexity, where large investments, both public and private, are often at stake.  The regulatory framework under which the industry operates is subject to continuous change as local or national policies evolve to stay ahead of the market. 

Innov8 consultants have over many years been working with major clients globally to review and propose changes to regulatory frameworks. We have reviewed standards and worked alongside technical experts to revise and develop standards as new technologies such as hydrogen transportation are introduced.

We have also many years developing research and innovation frameworks and delivering research and development projects from small desktop feasibilities through to large demonstrators.  We are happy to work with you on all of these issues bringing a wealth of experience to support your decision making processes.
