Energy shortage highlights the importance of energy storage technology

0 Published by admin Mar 19,2020

Energy shortages make energy storage technology particularly important. The capacity problems faced by oil and gas resources will be an opportunity to promote the energy storage market.


"China's oil and gas industry is facing difficult conditions such as declining resource quality, lower crude oil production, and high dependence on oil and gas. In 2017, China's foreign oil dependence has reached 67.4%, and there will be a further upward trend in the future. The energy industry is more than ever. More time, we need to emancipate our minds. More than ever, we need to accelerate the pace of innovation.” On July 13th, the Energy Interdisciplinary Symposium was held in Beijing. More than a dozen academicians spoke freely about energy technology innovation, and the director of the Engineering Management Department of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Hu Wenrui, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, made the above comments. He believes that the cross-integration and innovation of energy and cutting-edge disciplines will be the best path for future energy technology innovation.


"Interdisciplinary research has become the mainstream of the world's scientific and technological development, and has become one of the important ways to achieve major scientific discoveries and produce leading, original and subversive achievements. It is also an important way to enhance innovation and cultivate top talents." Zhao Wenzhi, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and dean of the China Petroleum Exploration and Development Research Institute, said that in the past 25 years, the proportion of Nobel Prizes has been close to 50% through cross-disciplinary research, and it is increasing year by year.


At present, the energy sector is becoming one of the most active areas of disruptive technology innovation, and new technologies such as solar power generation, high-efficiency energy storage, fuel cells, and hydrogen energy technologies are emerging. The world's major powers have made subversive technology a precedent for occupying the commanding heights of science and technology, focusing on tackling key problems and making important progress.


“Most disciplines in the energy field are applied disciplines, drawing on the latest research results from basic disciplines and frontier fields, and promoting interdisciplinary and integrated innovation in the energy field is the only way to accelerate energy science and technology innovation.” Zhao Wenzhi admits that US shale oil and gas The revolution is the best evidence. It not only promotes the realization of the US energy independence strategy, but also profoundly changes the global energy supply pattern.


"Behind the emergence of US shale oil and gas, it is the basic research work that lasted for 30 years, and the disruptive innovation of engineering technology." Zhao Wenzhi said that horizontal well drilling technology and large-scale multi-stage hydraulic fracturing technology The breakthrough of core technologies is derived from the intersection and integration innovation of oil and gas disciplines and information, materials and control.


At present, technological innovation has entered an unprecedentedly active period. "The new generation of information technology represented by big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and quantum information accelerates breakthrough applications, and advanced manufacturing technologies that integrate robots, digitization, and new materials are accelerating." In Hu Wenrui's view, energy and cutting-edge disciplines Cross-over and fusion innovations are demonstrating tremendous energy that is leaping, transformative, and disruptive, and may even trigger global energy changes.


The seminar was hosted by the Engineering Management Department of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and undertaken by the China Petroleum Exploration and Development Research Institute. Zhao Wenzhi revealed that on the one hand, the institute will aim at major scientific issues facing the upstream development of oil and gas in the next 5 to 10 years, strengthen the spatial distribution prediction of remaining oil and gas resources based on big data + intelligent theory, and develop technologies for intelligent oil displacement and full reservoir development. . On the other hand, a number of pre-school basic research projects will be established independently, and forward-looking research will be carried out on nano-oil displacing agents and high-performance metal battery energy storage technologies. Some projects have made important progress.
