  • Climate Biden Administration Proposes Kick-Starting Hydrogen. That’s Good News for Climate and for Jobs.

    Emission reductions across different sectors of the economy will not follow a one-size-fits–all approach. Hydrogen has been identified as a key solution that reduces carbon emissions for sectors where electrification and other measures are not sufficient. President Biden’s American Jobs Plan includes 15 hydrogen projects aimed to decarbonize a range of industrial applications in distressed communities and could create at least 18,000 jobs in 2025. This is very good news for the climate and for the American economy.  No one ever said that eliminating the emissions

  • Advanced Energy Systems Accelerating Decarbonization with Zero-Carbon Fuels

    Conventional fuels provide more than 80% of global end-use energy today – accounting for a significant piece of our global carbon emissions. Zero-carbon fuels like hydrogen (“H2”) and ammonia (“NH3”) are energy carriers that emit no carbon dioxide when consumed, and could replace conventional fuels in some parts of heavy transportation, industry, and power generation. […]

  • Advanced Energy Systems A New Study on Electric Reliability under Deep Decarbonization in New England

    A new study, carried out by the Energy Futures Initiative (EFI) and Energy and Environmental Economics (E3), is a thoughtful and rigorous analysis of what could be required to achieve net-zero economy-wide GHG emissions in New England, emphasizing the need to substantially expand the region’s electric sector, the importance of firm clean energy resources along […]

  • Advanced Energy Systems Another Gigawatt-Scale Hydrogen Project Is On The Drawing Board, And This Time It’s Deep “Blue”

    While support is growing for the need to decarbonize the global economy, many believe it will be very challenging to get there. And a growing number agree we’ll need all the tools available to us if we’re going to have a shot by mid-century, in time to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Included […]

  • Advanced Energy Systems Putting a (Green) Thumb on the Scale: Decarbonizing the Transportation Sector Will Require Policies that Support Specific Technologies

    Technology neutrality is frequently cited as a key positive attribute of the low carbon fuel standard (LCFS) policy approach. By allowing regulated entities to utilize any technology or system that delivers carbon intensity (CI) reductions, LCFS policies can enlist market-driven innovation by opening the decarbonization challenge to an unlimited set of potential solutions. If various […]

  • Advanced Energy Systems Building a Globally Networked Supply of Zero-Carbon Shipping Fuel

    Decarbonizing the global marine shipping sector will require policy, technology, and industrial advancements that are built for the long haul. The changes will have to be implemented over a period of years by a highly-coordinated international network of public and private sector stakeholders. The cooperation of major ports to facilitate the use of zero carbon […]

  • Policy Introduction of Smith-Luján Clean Energy Standard Legislation Builds on Momentum by States and Forward-leaning Utilities

    Today, Sen. Tina Smith (MN) and Rep. Ben Ray Luján (NM) introduced the Clean Energy Standard Act of 2019 in Congress.  Consistent with climate science indicating that to avoid the worst impacts of climate change we must decarbonize by mid-century, this bill would put the U.S. electric sector on the path to net zero carbon […]

  • Advanced Energy Systems Moving Forward with Zero-Carbon Hydrogen and Ammonia Fuels

    In April 2018, member countries of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) announced an “initial strategy” for cutting the shipping sector’s greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2050. If the worst consequences of climate change are to be avoided, major industries like international shipping will need to do more than cut their emissions by 50%—but the […]
