NETL’s Briggs White will provide an update on the development of the nation’s Fossil Energy Advanced Energy Storage Program during a webinar from 11 a.m. to noon EST on Wednesday, April 22.
During the U.S. Energy Association (USEA) webinar, White will provide an overview about the new program, explain its relationship to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Storage Grand Challenge and lead a discussion regarding future program plans. White serves as a technology manager at NETL where he manages three research and development programs related to fossil energy applications — High Performance Materials, Water Management and Energy Storage.
In collaboration with the Office of Fossil Energy, NETL has implemented the DOE initiative to accelerate the development and integration of energy storage technologies to ensure reliable supplies of affordable, clean energy from the nation’s fossil energy assets (both coal and natural gas).
Energy storage co-located with fossil energy assets offers a suite of benefits. Using such systems, a fossil fuel-based plant can continue to operate at high efficiency and store excess power until it’s needed by the grid, reducing the need to operate at fluctuating operational loads while ensuring reliable power supplies.
