Who can see your viewing activity?
We welcome you to the "Fuels Future in a Low-Carbon World". We will repost the 60 minute video of this webinar and anyone can view free of charge at https://cercsymposium.org/fuels-future-for-a-low-carbon-world/
Please type your questions in the Q&A area. Our moderator, Dr. Bryan Willson, will try to get to as many questions as possible.
Can you post the symposium URL
Awesome Saara! Do you have a link to the atlas?
The 9th annual 21st Century Energy Transition Symposium is coming up next week on May 4, 5 and May 14. Co-hosted by the four Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory (Univ of Colorado Boulder, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State Univ, National Renewable Energy Lab) this event is free to attend but everyone must register. https://cercsymposium.org/energy-transition-symposium-2021/ You can watch some or all of the 3-day event with over 55 speakers in 16 different sessions.
What is Wartsila's progress on dual-fuel engines to interconnect with gas pipeline systems using blending of hydrogen at different percentages?
Nice perspectives, Bryan, Saara, and Jason. Playing devil’s advocate here. With our electric and transportation needs likely to be met with solar and wind in combination with batteries, how much ‘fuel’ do we really need by 2050, given that the investments you are talking about will span over the next few decades. Perhaps not a lot and therefore we don’t need a lot of land to produce those fuels and not be so efficient in doing so?
Have you quantified the cost hurdles in these different efficiencies and industries?
Petteri, the original "E" was not 100% efficient; perhaps 40% for wind and 20% for solar. Might including that factor makes simple photosynthesis look pretty good?
In regards to the latest thoughts about biofuel for IC engines . . . is there a business case, a technical feasibility case and an environmental case that will make some biofuels a viable replacement for most fossil-based liquid fuels, and extend IC engine use for the near future?
We modelled that with Wärtsilä and NPPD in Nebraska already in 2019
Ah yes, sooner or later human population re-enters the equation.
When talking about electricity and efficiency it is assumed that system supplies the required electricity. It is not related to capacity utilization as I understand Tim Olsen is referring to.
centralized hydrogen production, storage and distribution is unlikely to be able to use a majority of existing fuel storage and distribution infrastructure based on steels with hydrogen embrittlement issues. Does this then lend itself to localized production and use initially, or conversion to ammonia as a transportable hydrogen "carrier" more compatible with existing infrastructure?
This means that there has to be storages in the system to balance the variable production.
How do you consider the use of syngas (synthetic gas) from the municipal solid waste and scrap tires as fuel for electric energy generation?Question from Francisco Mathews: My question merges from the problem of waste management disposal in the Caribbean territory due to scarcity of land and inappropriate municipal landfills.
Thanks a lot!!!
Next time would be nice to have two hours :)
