BP provides energy in a world of increasing demand and increasing complexity. Everyone wants secure, reliable, and affordable energy, but climate change, resource scarcity, and technical innovation are transforming the energy landscape.

There are many possible pathways to a sustainable energy future, and each presents unresolved technical challenges that will influence the time global-scale asset and infrastructure deployment that will take place over the next decades. BP’s energy portfolio demonstrates many of the research challenges in this arena – in which interesting Physics problems appear in applied context.

The physical scale of the World’s energy needs will be reviewed, and some examples of research challenges drawn from Enhanced Oil Recovery and Carbon Storage, through Remote Sensing and on to Biofuels will be presented.

This is the first CUPS event of the Lent 2012 Term, and we hope to see many of you there!
