DOE Allocates Funding to Decrease Power Station Carbon Emissions

The Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy will be allocating $43M to an effort that aims to improve power stations through the integration of technology that will decrease carbon emissions.

The FLExible Carbon Capture and Storage program will have two phases, the Department of Energy said Friday.

The first phase includes the design process of CCS systems that can operate in high variable renewable energy grids, while the second phase entails the manufacture of components and prototypes that mitigate CCS-related risks.

“The FLECCS program will quickly advance our carbon capture technology to bring us closer to flexible, low-cost, net-zero carbon electricity systems,” said Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette.
