 Advanced Energy Consortium at the Bureau of Economic Geology of the University of Texas AustinMohsen Ahmadian Academic Other Energy Technologies Advanced Energy Consortium (AEC) is a consortium of leading energy companies and global academic institutions facilitating research in nanotechnology and micro-sensing to promote a transformational understanding of subsurface reservoir properties at greater distances, with higher resolution and a more efficient manner than current tools allow. The AEC’s technology “reach” now extends beyond the consortium’s original mission, which focused on oil and gas exploration. We are targeting CO2 sequestration and utilization, pipeline surveillance, environmental monitoring, cement integrity, geothermal, plug and abandonment, and more. The development of distributed, real-time, miniaturized subsurface sensors and materials, with the associated data analytics, promises to provide revolutionary monitoring tools to address the “emission transition” in a more economical and environmentally safer manner. Essential aspects of the success of our consortium include the following:

• Fostering innovation and international cooperation, including engagement of the industrial, governmental, and academic communities.
• Developing revolutionary sensors and advanced materials approach for the enhanced commercial extraction and usage of resources in a more environmentally safe and sustainable manner.
• Establishing the AEC as an international clearinghouse for data and ideas related to subsurface micro- and nanosensing technology.

Current and former members of the AEC have commercialized many projects. Many students and postdoctoral fellows whom the AEC funded are now actively pursuing energy research. AEC has begun discussing a commercial valuation/evaluation exercise on its high TRL prototypes. We are excited about the opportunity to be at the leading edge of science and technology development for energy solutions. We thank you in advance for considering partnering with us to support the above mission.

 Arizona State UniversitySpring Berman Academic Other Energy Technologies Expertise: Robotics and autonomous systems, control theory, swarm robotics, bio-inspired robotics, soft robotics, collective behaviors

Background: Spring Berman is an Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Graduate Faculty in Computer Science and Exploration Systems Design at ASU. She is an Associate Director of the Center for Human, Artificial Intelligence, and Robot Teaming (CHART) within the ASU Global Security Initiative, and she directs the Autonomous Collective Systems (ACS) Laboratory. Dr. Berman received Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to joining ASU, she was a postdoctoral researcher in Computer Science at Harvard University.

Research: Dr. Berman’s research focuses on the design of scalable control strategies, including bio-inspired controllers, for robotic swarms and other types of distributed systems. Applications of these strategies include exploration and mapping, spatial coverage, task allocation, cooperative payload manipulation, and decentralized control of soft robotic manipulators. Her research group is also investigating techniques and testbeds, both simulators and small-scale physical environments, for characterizing human driving behaviors and replicating them on autonomous vehicles.

 Dalhousie UniversityDavid Barclay Academic Other Energy Technologies Background: Associate professor, Department of Oceanography, with experience in passive acoustic remote sensing and the development of autonomous passive acoustic profilers.

Interests: Primary interest is in validating a demonstrated method for making depth integrated pH measurements from ocean noise with complimentary direct measurements. The method relies on the measurement of the frequency dependent absorption of surface generated ocean sound, which is related to the concentrations of boric acid and magnesium sulfate. The sensitivity of the method should be tested, as well as the time and depth resolution. Lastly, the impact of acoustic-environmental variables (e.g. ship noise presence, propagation conditions, water depth and bottom composition) on the performance of the method should be evaluated. These objectives can be accomplished with the deployment of a single vertical line array in the deep ocean. Hydrophone elements are not required to be sample-synchronized.

Capabilities: Partner has access to ocean technology development staff, instrument development and testing facilities, graduate students, and support funding for some activities.
