The goal of our EnergyInnovates initiative is to highlight promising and interesting technology and people that are at the forefront of new energy solutions.  This fall, I had a chance to spend some time with the dynamic team at NET Power who are the very definition of innovators—and are changing the way we think about the electric power sector and carbon emissions.

NET Power is an innovative power plant that leverages technology designed to capture carbon dioxide emissions at no extra cost, before compressing and recirculating the gas into the system. Called the Allam Cycle after its inventor, Rodney Allam, the system was first successfully tested in May 2018 and will allow efficient, zero-emission energy production – using fossil fuels – when brought to market. NET Power’s ability to reduce the environmental footprint that is often associated with power plants holds the potential to completely revolutionize how we power the world.

Innovative by nature, NET Power employs a talented young workforce passionate about sustainability and making a difference when it comes to supplying power to a growing population. The opportunity to revolutionize the energy sector through the invention and implementation of zero-emission, low-cost electricity appeals to Millennials and STEM-based students alike.
