Find and Fix Super Emitters for Greater Methane Emissions Reductions

This webinar showcases PG&E’s Super Emitter Program and how PG&E has operationalized Picarro’s emissions quantification technology. The program helps PG&E reduce methane emissions in accordance with California’s emission reduction legislation. The Picarro solution combines data analytics with a vehicle-based methane emissions data collection platform and is used annually across PG&E’s gas distribution territory, resulting in the rapid identification of “Super Emitter” leaks which have especially high leak flow rates. Repairing the very small number of Super Emitters has resulted in a significant amount of emissions reduction in addition to PG&E’s ongoing emissions reduction efforts.
