EPRI’s 2nd annual ENV-Vision Conference brings together leaders from industry, government, NGOs, academia, and other stakeholders to define the research needs to solve the current and future environmental challenges facing the electricity sector.
This January, 2016 edition of the EPRI Journal focuses on research and industry insights, including the re-integration of nuclear power into Japan's energy portfolio and "super" coatings for transmission systems.
The U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative announced a cooperative funding award for an EPRI-led team of utilities, universities and companies to research the most optimal placement and combinations of solar PV and energy storage technologies in this three year project.
At least 11 nuclear units, including the six at Fukushima Daiichi, will be shut down permanently and fully decommissioned. For the remaining units, utilities are evaluating the costs and benefits of restarting after making significant safety modifications, which include increased tsunami and seismic protection.
A new video highlights work by EPRI, Southern Company and Southern Research (SR) at the new Southeastern Solar Research Center on new solar power technologies and performance.
A new EPRI white paper looks at technologies other than carbon capture and storage (CCS) that could enable power plants fueled solely by coal to operate so efficiently, they can meet proposed carbon dioxide emissions standards. See the press release and the full report.
EPRI research is being featured at several side events during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change COP 21 in Paris.
EPRI member organizations fund EPRI research and development programs (R&D). As provided for by membership criteria in EPRI’s bylaws, these organizations--typically utilities-also may participate in EPRI’s advisory structure, which serves as the collaborative foundation for establishing, guiding and implementing EPRI R&D.
