Beginning today and continuing through mid-June, NETL partners in academia and industry will present virtual updates on research activities across NETL’s project portfolio in its 2021 Crosscutting Research and Advanced Energy Systems Project Review Meeting.
Presentations will highlight NETL-supported projects in all areas of technology development that are advancing key initiatives toward a carbon emission-free electricity sector by 2035 and economy-wide net-zero emissions by 2050 while ensuring affordable, reliable energy supplies for U.S. economic growth in all regions.
Throughout the spring, engineers and scientists will meet for 10 sessions, all held virtually, to present their findings from projects undertaken within the Lab’s Crosscutting Research, Rare Earth Elements and Critical Minerals, Gasification Systems, Transformative Power Generation, Advanced Coal Processing programs and others.
Sessions will include accomplishments and plans for current research and development work associated with technologies such as sensors and controls, cybersecurity, modeling and simulation, water management and high-performance materials, modular coal gasification, air separation and reactor engineering design. Researchers also will discuss technologies to improve performance and extend the life of existing power plants and innovative efforts to identify and recover rare earth elements from coal and coal byproducts.
All sessions are free and open to all interested parties, but registration is required for attendance. Registration information, schedules and agendas are posted on the NETL website.
The complete schedule for the sessions follows:
The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory develops and commercializes advanced technologies that provide clean energy while safeguarding the environment. NETL’s work supports DOE’s mission to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy and environmental challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.
