    Agora Studio: New Technologies for Measuring & Reducing Methane

    Panel Power & Renewables Innovation & Technology Transportation & Mobility Energy Transition/Climate & Sustainability

    Twenty-five percent of greenhouse gas emissions are from methane gas. In comparison to carbon dioxide, methane is substantially more potent at increasing global temperatures. Given this, it is imperative that methane emissions are reduced if we are to have any chance of keeping those temperatures from rising above the IPCC’s 1.5 degrees Celsius threshold. A panel featuring a leading global energy producer, one of the world’s preeminent environmental organizations, and an innovative company focused on applying new technologies to identify and measure greenhouse gas emissions, sit down to discuss the latest in methane detection and reduction technologies, ongoing industries initiatives, and the increasing need for further transparency and collaboration in tackling one of the energy industry’s most daunting challenges.
