Integrating Solar and Fossil Fuels to Meet America's Energy Demand

Hybrid power technologies that incorporate renewable generation with conventional fossil fuel systems represent an emerging trend in America’s energy mix. These technologies help utilities to meet emissions reduction targets without compromising the reliability, stability or cost-effectiveness of their networks. Mountain View-California based AREVA Solar offers a range of hybridized solar-fossil fuel power products that deliver important benefits to utilities and their customers. With projects under way in the U.S. and Australia, AREVA Solar’s CSP solar-generated steam can be rapidly integrated into existing fossil fuel facilities to boost electricity generation during peak periods while simultaneously reducing emissions. Please join us for a discussion on the applicability and advantages of hybrid renewable-fossil fuel generation technologies, as well as the role that they will play in growing the share of renewable generation in our nation’s energy portfolio.
