The Atlantic Council Global Energy Center is excited to launch a new online event series: EnergySource Innovation Stream. Building off the Global Energy Center’s EnergySource blog and soon-to-be-announced EnergySource podcast, Innovation Stream will highlight new energy technologies with the potential to reshape the global energy system through discussions with companies and individuals working diligently to bring those innovations to market at scale.

Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 from 2:30 – 3:00 p.m. EDT for the first installment in the Energy Source Innovation Stream event series. Claude Letourneau, President & CEO of Svante Inc., will discuss Svante’s innovative nano-tech carbon capture filter developments, its field carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration program, the competitive climate tech landscape, and the means and methods for kickstarting a carbon management market. 

A leader in CCS innovation, Svante works to develop and commercialize a mission-critical climate mitigation option that addresses hard-to-abate greenhouse gas emissions from the cement, steel, chemical, and hydrogen production industries.

Please join this conversation via the web application Zoom, which is accessible through your web browser, the Zoom desktop or mobile app, and by phone. If you wish to join the question and answer period, you must join by app or web.

The second installment of EnergySource Innovation Stream will be on Thursday, April 2 from 11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. EDT and will feature Bill Brown, CEO of NET Power, as he discusses zero-carbon natural gas production and his vision for the electro-molecular economy.
