The Stanford Natural Gas Initiative is a collaboration of more than 40 research groups at Stanford University drawn from engineering, science, policy, geopolitical, and business disciplines that works with a consortium of industry partners and other external stakeholders to generate the knowledge needed to use natural gas to its greatest social, economic, and environmental benefit. 

 

We welcome new participants in our research and new members to our consortium any time. Please explore our website for more information.

Promising mobile technologies find methane leaks quickly, Stanford/EDF study finds

Finding natural gas leaks more quickly and at lower cost could reduce methane emissions. Ten promising technologies mounted on drones, trucks and airplanes were tested last year. The results are in.

During the 2018-19 school year, almost 300 Stanford University faculty and staff across all seven schools engaged in energy research, producing hundreds of studies representing advances in energy science, technology, business and policy. Beyond the faculty and staff researchers, hundreds of students and postdoctoral scholars perform much of Stanford’s work in energy.

Stanford University is home to the Stanford Natural Gas Initiative, which includes partners PG&E and SoCalGas.
