Research & Development
America’s world-class entrepreneurs, researchers and scientists are working to advance the development of alternative energy resources as part of an all-of-the-above portfolio and empower the United States to continue deploying clean energy technologies.
The United States’ energy security has changed dramatically since U.S. imports peaked in 2007. As the U.S. continues to decarbonize and work towards net zero, many questions must be answered: At what pace and scale will the U.S. need to deploy clean energy technologies to achieve net zero emissions?
CRES Forum Vice President of Policy and Research Richard Campbell penned the following piece for the Washington Times National Clean Energy Week Special Edition: Hydrogen has been discussed for decades as a possible fuel source to produce cleaner, American-made energy. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) designated approximately $8 billion for the development of […]
Industrial emissions have been steadily on the rise and could soon exceed emissions in the power sector as it continues its successful decarbonization efforts. As demand for industrial commodities grows in developing nations, it matters where these goods are produced. In the U.S., manufactured products are 40% more carbon efficient than the world average. Therefore, […]
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) capabilities need to be drastically expanded in order to meet the goal of keeping the global average temperature increase below 2°C. The IEA estimates that to achieve this target, the number of industrial scale carbon capture facilities needs to increase from the […]
Energy storage is considered the “holy grail” of energy because it allows for stockpiling unused power for when consumers need it the most. Currently, the U.S. electricity grid only has enough cumulative storage capacity to provide power for around 20 minutes – or a mere 10 seconds if only battery storage is considered. The development […]
Sustainable energy comes in many forms. In fact, sometimes energy can be found in a place you would least expect: trash! By burning municipal solid waste (MSW), waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities turn our garbage into energy, which is then harnessed to create electricity. The Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) and its Applied Research Foundation […]
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Citizens For Responsible Energy Solutions Forum (CRES Forum) Director of Policy and Advocacy Charles Hernick released the following statement regarding the halted progress of nuclear energy development in South Carolina. “Every day, nuclear energy provides Americans across the country with clean and reliable power,” said Hernick. “The recent national effort to […]
