Exploring a Better Energy Future
Svalex Expedition 2013
About the Webcast
One of the greatest challenges our society faces is how to provide sustainable energy to the 9 billion people who will be alive on the planet in 2050. The new energy mix needed to solve this global challenge will require imaginative thinking as well as openness and collaboration between organizations, academic institutions, and government entities. How can leaders in the oil and gas industry encourage purpose-driven innovation and act as responsible stewards for the next generation’s energy needs? How do we engage and empower future energy leaders?
MIT Technology Review’s Jason Pontin and Statoil’s Jonathan Matthews discuss how today’s energy companies stay competitive not just through technological innovation, but also by engaging in education and sponsoring programs like the Svalex Arctic Expedition. The expedition, a multidisciplinary program organized on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, offers a unique learning environment for students in petroleum-related fields. After the interview you can watch a documentary for an exclusive look at what a student’s life on the expedition is like.Learn more about the Svalex Arctic Expedition on Statoil.com »
