Discussion and insight from EGI: Spring webinar lineup

The Energy and Geoscience Institute at the University of Utah (EGI) is pleased to announce the Spring Webinar 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. The 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 April 6 at 9 a.m. MDT. Titled "Advanced Energy Projects with EGI: Finding Ways to Help Your Business with the Energy Transition," this presentation will be given by Kody Powell, Ph.D., associate professor of chemical engineering at the U.

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.
