For anyone who’s starting on the pathway to develop a program for reducing emissions, Methane Emissions Management is an essential foundational course, says course instructor Allan Fogwill.
On June 22, Fogwill will present a single-session course that is designed to help participants gain an in-depth understanding of the regulatory nuances, technical options and cost implications associated with emissions management.
Fogwill is president, and chief executive officer of the Canadian Energy Research Institute and has worked in the energy sector for more than 30 years in the public and private sector. For most of his career, he has focused on economic and market analysis of energy sector issues along with policy development related to energy regulation and efficiency issues.
The course outline includes an explanation of how methane emissions are linked to global warming and the various mitigation options. Registrants will be provided with tools and information to help access funding to support reduction activities.
The course is designed for executive and senior managers responsible for the natural gas portfolio, service providers and government employees.
“A lot of the technologies necessary to achieve the reductions are widely available,” said Fogwill. “So the technology risk is pretty low. The challenge of reducing their emissions is not a technological one. It's more of an operational and funding requirement. There's really straightforward solutions and there is funding available to help companies reduce emissions.”
Modules include: methane and climate change, sources of emissions, methane reductions in Canada, emissions mitigation technologies and a case study.
