Whether for hydrocarbons or new fuels derived from renewable resources, effective methods for storing, handling and transport are essential to the harnessing of energy sources. Infrastructure for movement and storage of these resources must be developed with an understanding of its social, economic, and environmental impacts –– including potential unintended consequences, such as the creation of locked-in emissions, or the stranding of assets.
A base of knowledge related to these questions must be developed, and distributed to planners, users, and decision-makers whose choices can shape our energy future for generations to come.
