The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and Gas Technology Institute (GTI) have created a five-year initiative focused on developing low-carbon energy technologies.
The Low-Carbon Resource Initiative (LCRI) spans the electric and gas sectors with a goal of global decarbonization. It has 18 anchor sponsors and US$10 million in funding from the EPRI collaborative, with an expectation to reach more than US$100 million through public and private collaboration.
The LCRI is targeting advancements in low-carbon electric generation technologies and low-carbon energy carriers, such as hydrogen, ammonia, synthetic fuels and biofuels. This worldwide collaborative will identify and accelerate the development of low-carbon technologies, demonstrate and assess the performance of technologies and processes and inform stakeholders and the public about potential pathways to a low-carbon future.
The sponsors include American Electric Power, Con Edison, Dominion Energy, Duke Energy, Exelon Corporation, Lincoln Electric System, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, Missouri River Energy Services, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Americas, National Fuel, New York Power Authority, Portland General Electric, PPL Corporation, Salt River Project, SoCalGas, Southern California Edison, Southern Company, and the Tennessee Valley Authority.
