Madeline Murphy Interviewed On Innovation In The Global Energy Sector

June 2024

Baton Rouge,  LA – Madeline Murphy, P.G., CPG, Senior Regulatory Specialist, Matrix New World Engineering was interviewed for The Idea Village’s ‘Innovation x Baton Rouge Area Carbon Reduction Alliance’.

The goal of this initiative is to build a strong pipeline of “climate tech” companies in Louisiana who can help drive the global energy sector’s shift to net-zero greenhouse emissions. The Idea Village and BRAC seek to deepen relationships with local energy industry leaders with a lens on innovation and ways to effectively work with startups. To drive sustainable economic growth while mitigating the risk of climate change, it is important that industry stakeholders’ pain points, technical challenges, needs, and business models are understood;   we believe the most successful new climate technologies will be developed when industry leaders are actively working hand-in-hand with venture-backable startups to move towards a global shift in reduced carbon and greenhouse emissions, together.

Topics of conversation included renewable energy, optimization, infrastructure, and deployment, carbon capture, and many more.  Murphy further clarified, “Matrix envisions a better future through engineering and scientific ingenuity”.  Matrix is utilizing our existing expertise and applying various skills in new ways to facilitate carbon reduction.

According to Jayne Warne, PE, Matrix President, “Matrix strives to offer best practices in the energy sector.  Madeline is a wonderful representative of the firm and our innovative policies toward helping the planet.”
