On Thursday, October 4, CURC and the Department of Energy co-hosted “Showcasing Advancements in Fossil Energy Technology,” an event to display and discuss the important progress being made in the area of technology development for power generation from fossil fuels. 15 organizations, including eight members of CURC, were on hand to exhibit their technologies and discuss the important steps their organizations are taking to commercialize the next generation of fossil energy technologies.
Senators Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), John Barrasso (R-WY), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) joined the Showcase to speak to the bipartisan consensus in the Senate that has formed around technologies like carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), the economic benefit of preserving power generation from our domestic energy resources, and importance of enhancing the value proposition for carbon dioxide. Steve Winberg, Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), discussed the important research and development being done at DOE to enhance the value of the existing fleet and efforts to ensure that promising power generation technologies make their way through the development pipeline to commercialization.
CURC would like to thank all who were able to attend the event. We would also like to extend a special thank you to our event sponsors and supporters, which include:
