CES Invited to Speak at the World Hydrogen Technologies Convention

Through collaboration with the Institute of Applied Energy (IAE), Clean Energy Systems was an invited speaker at the World Hydrogen Technologies Convention (WHTC). This year’s Convention marks the eighth meeting of global scientific, industrial, governmental and general audiences to exchange ideas and present the latest research findings and technologies for realizing a hydrogen society. Keith Pronske, CES’ President and CEO, presented on “Carbon-Negative Hydrogen Production and Utilization in Advanced Pressurized Oxy-Combustion Cycles.” The talk focused on a realistic path to zero-emission, advanced pressurized hydrogen-oxygen power cycles capable of efficiencies as high as 70%!

The 8th World Hydrogen Technologies Convention (WHTC 2019) was held in Tokyo, Japan, from June 2 to 7, 2019. Hosted by the Hydrogen Energy Systems Society of Japan, the Convention offered lectures, exhibitions, and technical tours exhibiting the most recent research findings. Japan was an excellent host as the country is seen as a pioneer of hydrogen energy technologies.

CES Presents to EPRI Generation Program Advisors

Twice a year, the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) holds a workshop with representatives of its member groups to ensure that collaborative research and development is focused on high-value industry goals and meets the long-term vision of the electric power industry. This February, Clean Energy Systems was invited to present to members of the Generation Program advisory committee, specifically members of the Advanced Generation and Bulk Energy Storage group. CES’ Director of Business Development, Rebecca Hollis, presented on the latest carbon negative energy and large-scale zero-emission energy storage opportunities utilizing our proprietary oxy-combustion technologies.

The goal of the Advanced Generation and Bulk Energy Storage program, also known as Program 66, is to identify and accelerate the development of new ways to generate power from fossil fuels and bulk energy storage that are beneficial in future markets with focus on providing flexible, lower carbon, synchronous power generation. Fossil power plants are being pressed to be more flexible with the growth of variable renewable energy, lower carbon to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and be more economical to remain competitive. This also drives interest in energy storage, particularly large-scale, longer duration technologies that can be integrated with or utilize fossil power assets. Clean Energy Systems’ pressurized oxy-combustion technologies offer a viable, near-term solution to solve the growing challenges and meet the needs of today’s energy producers.
