CURC Executive Director Shannon Angielski testified today before the Energy and Environment Subcommittees of the Space, Science and Technology Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives. Ms. Angielski testified as a part of a hearing entitled "The Future of Fossil: Energy Technologies Leading the Way."
CURC's testimony is based on the findings of the soon-to-be released 2018 CURC-EPRI Advanced Fossil Energy Technology Roadmap. The 2018 Advanced Fossil Energy Technology Roadmap identifies the research, development and demonstration for a suite of technologies that will transform the way fossil fuels are converted to electricity. There are several technologies identified in the Roadmap can transform the way we use our coal and natural gas resources for power generation.
If implemented, the Roadmap identifies technologies that can be available in the 2025-2035 timeframe that generate electricity from fossil fuels with significantly reduced carbon dioxide emissions that could be cost competitive with other sources of electricity generation. A companion analysis by CURC and ClearPath will be released with the Roadmap that quantifies the economic benefits to the U.S. of improved technologies, including over 800,000 new jobs and a GDP growth of over $160 billion annually by 2040.
