JISEA and Precourt Institute for Energy Map Natural Gas Research Agenda
December 2012 — In recognition of the major transitions occurring within the U.S. energy economy, the Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis (JISEA) and Stanford University's Precourt Institute for Energy (PIE) engaged diverse energy system stakeholders in a discussion about robust, objective, and timely research priorities relating to natural gas.
Held December 10-11, 2012 on the Golden, Colorado campus of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the workshop provided invited experts from government, industry, academia, and the environmental community an opportunity to describe the state of current knowledge and research priorities in defined topic areas:
- Dynamics of the natural gas market
- The U.S. market
- Environment and Infrastructure
- Metrics and measuring impacts
- Opportunities and challenges in the transportation, industrial, and buildings sectors.
The workshop was convened to help define a future research agenda to be undertaken by a collaborative effort of JISEA and PIE.
