Hear leading experts on grid reliability speak about the challenges encountered in Europe and how the U.S. plans to deal with those challenges in its quest to integrate increasing amounts of clean--but intermittent--renewable generation into the grid.
During Earth’s earliest days, algae and other single cell organisms launched a successful CO2 mitigation campaign that ultimately made human life possible. But are these tiny carbon fighters relevant to today’s climate conversation? Heralded by proponents, dismissed by naysayers, algae may not cure our carbon conundrum but could be a key enabler for carbon capture and use (CCU).

The United States is endowed with extraordinary riches: our nation holds more than a quarter of the world's coal reserves. Regrettably, this wealth is severely undervalued. Although coal has catalyzed industrial development in the 19th and early 20th century as a ready source of energy, chemicals, and materials, over the past decades its crucial role has been forgotten, and the coal became essentially synonymous with production of low-cost electricity. The path to realization of coal's true value lies in the development of new technologies.
Greatly increased customer participation in power markets will have a significant impact on the businesses that operate in those markets. Extensive consumer participation will require modifications to the design and operation of power markets, and these modifications will result in major changes in the businesses that participate in or support those markets.
