Energy Transition Event

Thursday, 25 May | 12:10 - 13:50

Confronted with the biggest and most difficult global challenge to mankind, efforts are intensifying to move away from fossil-based energy sources to zero-carbon energies. This transition to renewable energy resources and lowering of carbon dioxide emission to the atmosphere must happen at an unprecedented pace in order to have the desired effect. In this regard, urgent research in some major areas and technologies is needed. Many of these research questions are related to porous media phenomena. 

Onno van Kessel, General Manager CCS (Development & Subsurface) at Shell, will provide a plenary lecture entitled, "Energy transition and porous media; an industrial megaproject perspective."

During a lunch panel, a panel of experts will engage in a discussion with the participants regarding the current urgent research needs in various energy transition technologies and methodologies.

So that we can highlight contributions related to this theme in the program, please let us know if your abstract is related to Energy Transition by selecting from the drop-down menu when submitting your abstract.
