Uncertainty in the availability of natural resources ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Energy policies are strongly influenced by resource availability and recoverability estimates. Yet these estimates are often highly uncertain, frequently incommensurable, and regularly contested. This paper explores how the uncertainties surrounding estimates of the availability of fossil fuels, biomass and critical metals are conceptualised and communicated.

Likelihood of climate change pathways under

Uncertainties concerning fossil fuel resource availability have traditionally been deemphasized in climate change research as global baseline emission scenarios (i.e., scenarios that do not consider additional climate policies) have been built on the assumption of abundant fossil fuel resources for the 21st century.However, current estimates are subject to critical uncertainties and an ...

Abstract. The ever-increasing energy demand has led to overexploitation of fossil fuels deposits, while renewables offer a viable alternative. Since renewable energy resources derive from phenomena related to either atmospheric or geophysical processes,

Energy Environmental Science

The long-established perception of abundant fossil fuel resources has traditionally determined energy and climate policy, with future energy transitions being largely modeled as demand-driven transformations. However, increasing scientific evidence is showing that non-renewable energy resources availability is subject to high uncertainty.

Abstract. The ever-increasing energy demand has led to overexploitation of fossil fuels deposits, while renewables offer a viable alternative. Since renewable energy resources derive from phenomena related to either atmospheric or geophysical processes, unpredictability is inherent to renewable energy systems. An innovative and simple stochastic tool, the climacogram, was chosen to explore the ...

2019-5-26  Fossil sources scarcity and environmental contamination are the major factors that put the energy industry into focus. Considering the lack of accuracy in fossil reserves, we propose an optimization model to plan investments in the Argentinean energy structure taking into account uncertainty in the fossil source availability. Tactical decisions, such as the amount of primary and

How long before we run out of fossil fuels? - Our

Fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) are finite — consume them for long enough and global resources will eventually run out. Concerns surrounding this risk have persisted for decades. Arguably the most well-known example of this was Hubbert’s Peak Theory — also known as the Hubbert curve.

Fossil Natural Gas - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Fossil natural gas consisting mainly of methane is a natural resource found mainly in either natural gas fields or in oil well fields (where is comes in association with oil) and coal beds (where methane is adsorbed in porous coals and is also known as coal bed methane or coal seams gas). Other important sources of natural gas are in the form of hydrates sediment present under permafrost regions.

Resource Scarcity - A Global Security Threat?

2015-11-27  How scarce a natural resource actually is depends on the substance and its properties. The central indicators of scarcity are geological availability, the static range of reserves (static life index) and price. The static life index, which is used mainly to determine the scarcity of finite resources, is the

GMD - Automated Monte Carlo-based quantification

Uncertainty quantification (UQ) is at the heart of decision making. This is particularly true in subsurface applications such as groundwater, geothermal resources, fossil fuels, CO 2 sequestration, or minerals resources. Uncertainty on the geological structures, rocks, and fluids is due to the lack of access to the subsurface geological medium.
