Project to produce clean hydrogen from nuclear power wins $20m

A total of six tonnes of stored hydrogen will be used to produce around 200MWh of electricity during times of high demand

US invests $80m in net zero electricity and hydrogen plants

The plants will be fuelled by coal, natural gas, biomass and waste plastics and will incorporate carbon capture, utilisation and storage technologies

US invests $30m in fusion energy research and development

The programme will support the development of timely, commercially viable fusion energy, aiming to increase the number and performance levels of lower cost fusion concepts

US invests $24.9m in hydropower and marine innovation

It will support industry-led solutions to increase hydropower’s ability to serve as a flexible grid resource

US awards $28m to advance wind energy development

The Department of Energy believes significant opportunities for cost reductions remain, especially in offshore wind and distributed wind projects

US invests $56.5m in advanced clean coal technologies

A total of 32 winners will share the funding for projects including carbon capture, utilisation and storage and steam turbine efficiency

US launches new demonstration centre for nuclear reactors

The National Reactor Innovation Centre will provide the private sector technology developers with the necessary support to test and demonstrate their reactor concepts and assess their performance

US invests $14m in nuclear fusion energy research

A major goal of the research is to develop methods to sustaining steady-state or continuous operation of fusion reactors

US invests $40m in enhanced oil recovery

Five projects will share the funding as part of the Department of Energy’s strategy focused on increasing recovery and operational efficiency

US invests nearly $50m to advance nuclear energy tech

A total of 58 projects in 25 states are sharing the funding from the Department of Energy
