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 forum, 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.
We invite all participants to go through the slides (linked below) and pose any questions they have via the forum's Whova Q&A. The questions will be will be discussed during the lunch forum on Tuesday.
