Education and Outreach: CH4 Connections and the Center for Methane Research (CMR)

CH4 Connections Methane Emissions Conference

The rapidly changing landscape of technology, regulation, and work practices take center stage at the annual CH4 Connections Methane Emissions Conference. GTI and the Energy Institute at Colorado State University are excited to welcome attendees back to a live and in-person event at CH4 Connections 2021. Taking place October 12-13 at CSU in Ft. Collins, Colorado, this year’s agenda promises to be another robust and thought-provoking event in a long series of successful conferences. The event unites representatives from the natural gas industry, research organizations, regulatory agencies, and technology vendors in one setting. Join us in an in-person conversation targeted at reducing methane emissions and carbon impacts through innovative technology solutions and methane emissions policy.

GTI and the Energy Institute at Colorado State University virtually hosted the 7th annual CH4 Connections conference, Technology Enabling Green Initiatives, on November 17-19, 2020 and it was extremely well received. The online sessions combined webinars with interactive Zoom sessions, a virtual exhibit hall, small group discussions, the ability to send messages or schedule private meetings among attendees, sponsors, and speakers, and opportunity to earn points throughout the conference and win prizes graciously donated by sponsors.

The event connected approximately 225 leading research experts, policy makers, and environmental advocates to collaborate and share perspectives on important issues. Keynote speakers featured Colorado State Senator Chris Hansen and former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter Jr., who is the current Director of the Center of New Energy Economy at Colorado State University, Many other methane emissions and mitigation experts who served as moderators and panelists provided an intimate and interactive experience for participants.

 

Center for Methane Research (CMR)

The Center for Methane Research (CMR) provides a centralized, industry-wide technical and policy support resource focused on the presence, measurement, and potential impacts of methane in the atmosphere, highlighting the interconnected role of natural gas production, delivery, and use.

The CMR collects and analyzes existing data on methane emission trends and atmospheric concentration to offer a common platform of technical understanding to drive decision-making. It also facilitates and conducts new scientific investigations, with an emphasis on atmospheric methane concentration and chemistry as well as methane radiative physics.
