Empowering Climate Action with Data – satellite methane monitoring


Empowering Climate Action with Data – satellite methane monitoring

Digital technologies have tremendous potential to help the energy system get on track with the net zero pathway. Efficient and accurate monitoring of emissions is one of the key areas where digital innovations can accelerate progress to achieve net-zero goals for energy companies. Go Digital Energy conference hosted a webinar with GHGSat, one of the global leaders in satellite methane monitoring technology.

The patented orbital sensor technology pioneered by GHGSat makes it possible to image down to 25 m on the ground and locate individual sources of emissions, even smaller ones. Combined with detailed AI-driven metrics and insights provided by the client platform Spectra, GHGSat’s emissions data empowers carbon-intensive industries and governments to achieve impressive decarbonization results.

The webinar discusses the importance of data-driven approaches in the energy sector, particularly for GHGSat. The use of AI and ML is crucial for identifying potential problems and predicting maintenance and emission issues.

During the webinar Deepak Anand, Chief Business Officer at GHGSat shared how can operators, governments, and agencies use data to drive insights to make an impact.

How GHGSat monitor emissions?

Deepak highlights the importance of transparency and data in decision-making, emphasizing that data should always beat opinion.

Let's look at the energy world at large. The key thing here will be, how we can use data and technology to still deliver on the energy needs of the world, but now to do it at less impact, at less cost, and keep everything a little bit more secure, everything a little bit more abundant, but also try to reduce in the same phase. We have so many problems happening at once. We do need a sort of multifaceted solution. And the only way to make that happen is through technology and data.

Deepak shared what learnings and best practices can the energy companies use from other industries like retail and finance, as well as events like Covid.

The discussion also covered the pros and cons of building solutions from scratch versus using existing ones, and the importance of considering factors like API accessibility and scalability when choosing a data-sharing platform. The speaker encourages the audience to implement something new and not let future projects linger.
