  • Outreach - GCEP
    international energy conferences and share their technical expertise with a number of organizations GCEP Distinguished Lecturers We established a GCEP distinguished lecturer program to highlight significant research accomplishments This year three distinguished lecturers have been selected and will travel to each of our sponsor s research centers to present their work and engage in a two way dialogue with the in house R D organizations Many of the lecturers will also give their talk at the Energy Seminars sponsored by the Precourt Institute for Energy and the Woods Institute which are open to the entire Stanford community GCEP Distinguished Student Lecturers In the summer of 2011 the GCEP Student Energy Lecture series was launched to allow GCEP graduate students and postdoctoral scholars the opportunity to give short presentations about their innovative clean energy research to an audience of their peers The participants also receive valuable feedback from Stanford s Center for Teaching and Learning GCEP Student Activities GCEP Student Representatives help to organize events for GCEP graduate students and postdocs to interact and learn more about the Project s energy research GCEP Sabbatical Program GCEP has established a small program to support faculty who are interested in spending a sabbatical leave at Stanford University and GCEP The program is designed to encourage scientists and engineers who are interested in expanding their research programs to include energy related topics Energy Information Website In collaboration with Professor Roel Snieder at Colorado School of Mines a website with useful links to resources for energy education and research has been developed Community Information Outreach Successfully making the transition to an energy system with low GHG emissions will require broad awareness of the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions technology opportunities for accomplishing this and career opportunities in the energy industry Technical Meetings GCEP holds

  • About Us - GCEP
    December 2002 four sponsors ExxonMobil GE Schlumberger and Toyota helped launch GCEP at Stanford University with plans to invest 225 million over a decade or more DuPont and Bank of America joined the GCEP partnership in 2011 and 2013 respectively bringing new perspectives and insights about the global energy challenge GCEP develops and manages a portfolio of innovative energy research programs that could lead to technologies that are efficient environmentally benign and cost effective when deployed on a large scale We currently have a number of exciting research projects taking place across disciplines throughout the Stanford campus and are collaborating with leading institutions around the world Objectives We believe that no single technology is likely to meet the energy challenges of the future on its own It is essential that GCEP explore a range of technologies across a spectrum of globally significant energy resources and uses As a result our primary objective is to build a diverse portfolio of research on technologies that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions if successful in the marketplace Among GCEP s specific goals 1 Identify promising research opportunities for low emissions high efficiency energy technologies 2 Identify barriers to the large scale application of these

  • News - GCEP scientists probe abandoned mine for clues about permanent CO2 sequestration
    the most attention of the negative emissions technologies It was one of the topics of a 2013 GCEP report co authored by Milne that assessed energy producing technologies that could reduce atmospheric carbon The BECCS approach can be used in power plants that generate electricity or factories that make chemicals and fuels BECCS takes advantage of the innate ability of plants to capture atmospheric CO 2 for photosynthesis In nature the CO 2 is eventually released back into the atmosphere as the plant decays At a BECCS facility grass and other vegetation is burnt along with coal or natural gas The CO 2 emissions are captured and sequestered in the ground instead of going into the atmosphere thus bypassing the decaying process The result is a net negative reduction in atmospheric CO 2 A number of technical and policy issues have to be addressed before negative emissions technologies can be implemented at scale Some of the key challenges were discussed by symposium speakers Smith Jennifer Wilcox of Stanford Ken Caldeira of Stanford and the Carnegie Institution s Dept of Global Ecology and James Edmonds of the Joint Global Change Research Institute Wilcox a professor of energy resources engineering noted that thermodynamic laws dictate that the direct air capture of CO 2 would require so much energy that any system to do so would have to be run on renewable energy or it would produce more emissions than it would remove In addition the total costs of the crushed mineral approach known as accelerated weathering when heat and processing are used are currently prohibitive at 1 000 per ton of CO 2 removed Wilcox said Using byproducts of certain industrial processes like cement kiln dust to absorb carbon passively is economic she said but the total global potential for this approach
