Timelines for mitigating the methane impacts of natural gas expansion

Magdalena Klemun


Magdalena Klemun is a PhD candidate at the Institute for Data, Systems and Society (IDSS) at MIT. She received her M.S. in Earth Resources Engineering from Columbia University and her B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from Vienna University of Technology. Her research explores the implications of energy technology improvement for the feasibility of climate change mitigation targets, with a particular focus on natural gas and photovoltaics. 


Continued natural gas expansion is expected to reduce CO2 emissions from electricity in several large economies, but reductions of CO2 may not be sufficient to meet climate policy goals. While CO2 arises from large point... [ view full abstract ]
