Technology Studies
Avalon Energy has vast experience is conducting studies in various technology applications across the energy value chain. These studies were designed to support the client’s R&D team get a complete understanding of various competing technologies, its applications and also commercial implications. We find ourselves at ease while dealing with various technologies and processes.

State of Art Studies
The state of art studies provides a comprehensive understanding of the technology and the segment where it is applied. The study will provide the client with information covering various aspects such as:

      • Overview of the technology domain
      • Current state of the commercialized technologies
      • New product developments and technologies under R&D and pilot stage
      • Scan on key players active (Companies/Research institutes/Academic institutions, Consortiums) including their technological focus, Investments, R&D programs,
        Research Funding etc
      • Financials(Investment, Capex and Opex Data)
      • Projects Activity - with the current status
      • Technological as well as Commercial Tie-up and agreements

We have conducted over a hundred state of art technology studies in last 1 year. Some of the recent studied domain includes Cyclic Fixed bed reactors, C4 technologies, Aromatics, Biofuels, Tailings Management, Oil Sands, PV Back Sheet, Cellulosic Ethanol, Gas Treating Technologies etc.

Process Simulations and Modeling
We have required experience in conducting various process simulations and modeling exercises using various commercially available tools like HYSYS, Aspentech, PROII etc. We have the requisite expertise and necessary infrastructure to model installations with various process units and equipment sizes. We do undertake EPC level cost estimate along with detailed break up for categories such as Steel & Pipe, Electrical & instrumentation, Equipment, Labor, Engineering & Project Management, Civil & Construction etc.

Licensing opportunities Identification
We have worked with various clients in identification of potential opportunities for licensing of their proprietary technologies and systems. Accordingly, we evaluate various Brownfield and Greenfield opportunities across regions and sectors. Quantum of opportunities is used as the basis for short listing potential sectors and regions. This is followed by a detailed research to zero in on potential clients.

We conduct initial discussions with the potential licensee to understand their current technology and limitations of the same. We do try to understand their future expansion plans and check the scope for evaluating new technology of our client.

We do provide custom research solutions for our clients to meet various needs such as:

      • Identification of Manufacturers, vendors and Service providers for various product offerings
      • Capex and Opex Estimation
      • Analyzing threats of substitutes from new products/materials
      • Tracking technological developments in a particular sector/domain
