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

CH4 Connections Methane Emissions Conference

National focus has escalated around characterizing and managing methane emissions. Better measurement of methane emissions is an essential first step so too, is the importance of measurement data being understandable and usable by the operators that are going to have to mitigate those emissions. The 10th annual CH4 Connections Methane Emissions Conference was hosted by GTI Energy and the Energy Institute at Colorado State University and focused on how to effectively decarbonize our energy systems and the role of methane emission mitigation in these efforts. The conference took place on October 4-5, 2023 in Fort Collins, CO, the theme was Charting a Path to Success by 2030.

This year’s agenda was 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 next year in a conversation targeted at reducing methane emissions and carbon impacts through innovative technology solutions and methane emissions policy.

GTI Energy and the Energy Institute at Colorado State University have partnered to co-host the conference for the past seven years. The event is a way to connect with leading research experts, policy makers, and environmental advocates to collaborate and share perspectives on important issues. Keynote speakers along with methane emissions and mitigation experts serve as moderators and panelists providing 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.
