  • COP28 produces new climate pledges from oil and gas companies.
    on December 21, 2023

    COP28 produces new climate pledges from oil and gas companies. We’re leaning into the tough next step: keeping them.We’re used to hearing pledges and targets at the annual United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP). It usually promises a new slate of international partnerships and collaborations. As I walked the avenues in Dubai, this year seemed different, like it was the starting gun in our fight against climate change.More than 50 companies representing 40% of global oil and gas […]

  • Leveraging Clean Gases, Fuels, and Infrastructure for the Storage Solutions of Tomorrow
    on August 22, 2023

    This story was originally published on Nov. 11, 2020.I had the opportunity to participate in the Energy Storage Association’s #ESACon20. Joined by Jeff St. John, Dr. Laura Nelson, and Ashkan Nassiri, I laid out my case for how GTI and the broader gases and fuels communities can partner with the energy storage community to create low-cost, low-carbon energy systems in 2030 and beyond.So often, we talk about energy in different silos — how will we decarbonize transportation? Our power […]

  • How Do We Move With Speed and Scale to Transition Our Energy Systems?
    on August 15, 2023

    At GTI Energy, we are approaching this question from a systems perspective. As we consider how to achieve net-zero emissions by midcentury, while also fostering economic vitality and quality of life, our thinking is grounded in a clear-eyed appreciation for how energy systems work. Rather than focusing on a single sector, a single energy carrier, or a single technology, we are keeping the aperture wide. We’re thinking about energy transitions with curiosity about the innovations yet to come, […]

  • Data Quality and Sample Planning to Develop Credible Emissions Estimates
    on July 27, 2023

    Companies and governments worldwide are facing mounting pressure to reduce emissions from methane, a potent climate pollutant. Yet, the landscape of methane emissions monitoring is rapidly evolving, unveiling numerous innovative technologies — from satellites to handheld sensors. These tools hold the promise of developing more accurate estimates of actual emissions, shifting away from conventional inventory calculations toward measurement-based inventories. As the energy industry embraces […]

  • How GTI Energy is Evolving Today’s Natural Gas Infrastructure to Accelerate Energy Transitions
    on June 21, 2023

    At GTI Energy we think a lot about the importance of leveraging existing infrastructure in transitions to low-carbon, low-cost energy systems. The United States is poised to invest more than half a trillion dollars into clean energy and climate action over the next decade. Meeting growing demand for affordable energy while slashing emissions will require combining what we know works with innovations to prove new solutions. And putting these new solutions to work will require all sorts of […]
