Panel discussion

During the panel discussions at GET2022 we will be discussing the challenges facing the geoscience and engineering community and solutions for a sustainable future of energy and society.

Maintaining a social license to operate - Focus on Methane Emissions

Methane is a powerful but short-lived climate pollutant that accounts for about half of the net rise in global average temperature since the pre-industrial era. The energy sector is responsible for almost 40% of total methane emissions attributable to human activity, second only to agriculture. The Global Methane Pledge launched during COP 26 agrees to take voluntary actions to contribute to a collective effort to reduce global methane emissions at least 30 percent from 2020 levels by 2030, which could eliminate over 0.2˚C warming by 2050. To tackle methane emissions, companies need a granular understanding of where they are coming from, as well as robust methane mitigation practices and technology to enable them to address the issue.

Geosciences and the Pathway to Net Zero: How geoscience helps to achieve an ambitious global goal

The path to Net Zero is a necessary but a very challenging path that we must take as a society. Companies, public authorities, associations, but also scientific and educational institutions must fully participate in order to be successful. The geosciences and engineering sciences play an important role, because these scientific fields can provide the necessary process understanding. But the challenges of this transition also mean adjustments in education and training.

Grow up the Transition: How does the industry address the challenges to scale up energy transition technologies?

The industry – including operations, services, applied research, regulating bodies and policy associations – can and should ensure the robustness of the energy transition solutions and the feasibility of their scale-up, their “industrialization”, their deployment to “industrial scale”.

What challenges is the industry facing in taking this role? What solutions is it applying, and what directions should be taken?
