Technavio on carbon management software. NETL monitors CCS. MIT on future of solar.

A new report from Technavio investigates the market for carbon management software. This is set to triple over the period from 2015-2019 as governments seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by formulating ‘energy-based rules and regulations.’ The study compares software from Accenture, Deloitte, IBM, Johnson Controls and SAP.

The DOE’s National energy technology laboratory (NETL) is researching into CO2 storage technologies focusing on intelligent monitoring systems and well integrity under its carbon storage program. Project partners include Baker Hughes, Chevron, Computer Modeling Group, Schlumberger, Shell and several N American research institutes. NETL is also funding small and large-scale CCS pilots in its carbon capture program. Here partners include Dresser-Rand, WorleyParsons, Alstom and GE. Another NETL initiative is investigating the effectiveness of onshore and offshore carbon storage technologies to prepare them for ‘widespread commercial deployment in the 2025–2035 time frame.’

MIT has published a free 365 page study, The future of solar energy, motivated by its ‘enormous potential to reduce global CO2 emissions and the great importance of effecting those reductions.’
