Gas Innovation

The theme builds technical and strategic knowledge on the role of natural gas in secure, competitive and affordable low carbon energy systems. It addresses the key risks in the size of future gas markets by developing low carbon gas utilization technologies and systems.

This assessment of energy systems futures will create a vision of sustainable gas use and applied technology research will drive this vision forwards.

    Women in Engineering Day: Q&A with Dr Julia Sachs

    22 June 2017

    For National Women in Engineering Day (23rd June), we asked Dr Julia Sachs, a researcher at the Sustainable Gas Institute, TEN questions about her career in the sector. Julia studied Engineering Cybernetics at the University of Stuttgart. Following her PhD, she is now working on a new energy systems model, MUSE in the Department of Chemical Engineering at […]

    Ryan Clark: Reducing emissions through biogas and CCS technology

    16 June 2017

    Capturing greenhouse gas emissions and injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) underground along with the increased use of renewables (such as biogas) all have the potential to reduce emissions while meeting our energy needs. Ryan Clark, a visiting researcher at Imperial College from the University of Regina in Canada has been investigating this area. Based in the department […]
