The Energy and Geoscience Institute at the University of Utah (EGI) is pleased to announce the Fall Webinar Series after the success of the Spring series.
EGI is a multidisciplinary research institute at the U specializing in petroleum production, carbon management and renewable energy. The energy landscape is changing rapidly. These webinars are intended to provide information on ongoing research in advanced energy technologies. The webinar series will also help EGI gather feedback from its industrial partners and the community on the ongoing work and collaboration opportunities.
The first presentation in the series will be on Sept. 7 at 9 a.m. MDT. Titled “Mitigating the Risk of Misidentifying Organofacies: New Approaches,” this presentation will be given by Eiichi Setoyama, Ph.D., research scientist with EGI.
EGI has performed groundbreaking geoscience research around the world, worked on innovative geothermal technologies and developed a portfolio of carbon dioxide sequestration projects. EGI manages FORGE (Frontier Observatory for Research in Geothermal Energy), an EGS (Engineered Geothermal Systems) project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. EGI has added decarbonization and grid management expertise to provide integrated and optimized solutions across the entire energy value chain for the low-carbon future. Strength in petroleum exploration, well construction, production, and refining as well as in renewables and carbon management allows EGI to lead in the ongoing energy transition, while promoting energy security.
EGI collaborates with industrial partners through its Corporate Associate Membership Program or through sponsored research projects and consortia. Participants benefit from the discoveries, and by interacting with faculty, students and scientific staff while engaging in multi-sponsored, cost-shared research.
