Role of Subsurface Engineering and Geology in the Energy Transition World
The world is in the midst of the first “truly global energy crisis” the International Energy Agency (IEA) said in its World Energy Outlook in October 2022. It’s multidimensional and is coming with the challenge of global warming and the need to reduce / eliminate CO2 emissions. We are all experiencing the impact of rising CO2 in the atmosphere: ocean levels rising, more intense storms, and rising temperatures with corresponding impact on us and the environment around us. Conflicting pressures linked to continued high energy demand, the need for energy security, and the imperative for a reduction in CO2 emissions is driving unprecedented renewable energy growth. This presentation will touch on the challenges related to these conflicting pressures and how existing and start-up energy companies are addressing some of these challenges through numerous renewable energy and carbon sequestration options, particularly focusing on the crucial role subsurface engineering and geology can and are playing in this journey. Highlights of the current situation in Michigan and some related business opportunities will also be discussed.
