Infrastructure gets energy to where and when it is needed in an affordable manner to serve a diverse set of customers, and it is fundamental to enabling grid-scale energy transport and storage. It offers reliable, resilient, long-distance energy transport, direct-to-customer delivery, and vast storage capacity to address seasonal demand variations. Leveraging existing infrastructure will be critical to keeping transitions to low-carbon systems affordable and provide pathways to economy-wide deep decarbonization that supports growing economies worldwide.
Utilities are working to safely integrate new low-carbon fuels into the current gas infrastructure, providing access to clean resources that can be used safely and distributed without damaging pipelines.
Researchers at GTI Energy are increasing the understanding of infrastructure threats and enabling operators to improve the accuracy of inspections, predict asset performance, and calculate system risk. With safety always at the forefront, we are developing innovative new technologies and optimizing tools to effectively manage and improve day-to-day operations, prevent damage, and reduce risk.
Developing technology and information to manage assets and maintain a safe and reliable infrastructure
As the interest on addressing methane emissions and minimizing greenhouse gases continues to grow, the role of our existing infrastructure and ensuring its integrity is critical. GTI Energy, often working with the support of OTD, is developing new hardware and information tools in our infrastructure asset management program.
Empowering operators to assess pipeline integrity and manage risk
New methodologies and technologies can enable the integration of renewable energy, improve the accuracy of pipeline inspections, or reduce the costs of an integrity management program. GTI Energy is providing the tools needed to make data-driven, risk-based decisions with our work in pipeline integrity.
