DAMORPHE low carbon is focused on energy transition starting with geothermal energy.
Throughout history economic development has coincided with increasing demand for energy, resulting in growing materials consumption, however not without related harmful emissions. Clean energy transitions must decouple these trends. As such the next decade will witness to several mega trends – energy transition, a move to “Low Carbon” footprint, the first steps towards net-zero emissions energy system(s), advance materials and digitalization as the key enablers.
Materials are the building blocks of our society. Materials research and development are fundamental to today’s energy technologies and the challenges we need to meet to fuel tomorrow’s sustainable energy needs. Innovations in materials value chain focuses on the science and technology of “Advanced Materials”, those that enable components to perform in the HPHT, corrosive hydrocarbon environments as well as make possible embodiments for energy transition, with specific emphasis on durability, availability, and cost. With our industries transitioning to a sustainable and Low-Carbon imprint, high-performance materials will be key to realizing dispatch-able, reliable, high-efficiency, decarbonized power generation.
To address and contain deleterious impact to our climate, while also meeting the growing demand for energy, we have to adapt an approach based on science, facts and information, instead invest efforts chasing popular, however unproven hypes. We envision, sensors and digitalization will help support the design and operation of entirely new energy systems at the device, plant and regional scales – transforming the way we manage the carbon footprint of industrial processes.
