The North American Energy Dialogue is a four-part seminar series hosted by the University of Alberta, the University of Texas at Austin, and the Tecnológico de Monterrey.
Industry is the basis for prospering societies and central to economic development. As the source of almost one-quarter of CO2 emissions, it must also be a central part of the clean energy transition. This webinar will take a closer look at CCUS technologies and the critical role they can play in reducing industry sector CO2 emissions. The focus will be on Canada’s current energy landscape, but will draw upon perspectives and experiences from experts in the United States and Mexico.
• How can governments support development and deployment of CCUS in industry as part of a least-cost portfolio of technologies needed to achieve climate and energy goals?
• What are the challenges and opportunities in the development of CCUS “hubs” in industrial areas with shared transport & storage infrastructure?
• Can lower-carbon cement, steel and chemicals, accelerate the adoption of CCUS and other lower-carbon processes?
The program will open with a keynote speaker who will introduce and set up the topic. Following the keynote, each panelist will deliver opening statements. A conversation among the panelists will follow which will be led by the moderator.
Moderator and Keynote Speaker: Dr. Rick Chalaturnyk (Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering; Principal Investigator, GeoREF; Foundation CMG Chair in Reservoir Geomechanics; University of Alberta)
