Traditional Energy production is at the heart of the global political, economic, environmental, industrial, and societal infrastructure. The future of these interdependent demands is addressable only through a portfolio of solutions, with traditional energy production, generation and distribution a key portfolio component in the foreseeable future. Emerging Clean and Cleaner technologies applied into these industries has the potential for improved efficiencies, increased production and distribution, and improved products and processes all at a reduced footprint.
