  1. Southern Co. welcomes Chinese research facility to carbon capture coalition

    Southern Co. has announced an agreement for Huaneng Clean Energy Research Institute to join the Carbon Capture International Test Center Network, a global coalition of facilities working to accelerate the research and development of carbon capture technologies. The National Carbon Capture Center, a U.S. Department of Energy research facility managed and operated by Southern Co., leads and serves as host site for the network. Located in Beijing, the Clean Energy Research Institute is a unit of China Huaneng Group. The institute engages in a wide range of clean energy research and development, including carbon capture, use and storage, coal gasification , renewable energy and emissions reduction technologies. "The addition of the Huaneng Clean Energy Research Institute to the network broadens the abilities of Southern Company and its research partners to develop next-generation carbon capture technologies, which are critical for a cleaner energy future," said Southern Co. executive vice president and chief operating officer Kimberly S. Greene. "We look forward to working with DOE and network members to continue the development of real solutions that will advance 21st century coal technologies on the international stage." Formed in 2012, the International Test Center Network facilitates knowledge sharing among carbon capture test facilities around the world. The National Carbon Capture Center currently chairs and operates the network with DOE's Office of Fossil Energy, a role previously held by Technology Centre Mongstad of Norway. Located in Wilsonville, Alabama, the center works with scientists and technology developers from government, industry and universities to evaluate, demonstrate and advance emerging carbon capture technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coal- and natural gas-based power generation. The members of the International Test Center Network are: ·      CO2CRC, Australia ·      CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad, Norway ·      Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, Australia ·      Huaneng Clean Energy Research Institute, China ·      Korea Institute of Energy Research, South Korea ·      National Carbon Capture Center, United States ·      SaskPower , Canada ·      SINTEF Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research, Norway ·      UKCCSRC Pilot-Scale Advanced Capture Technology, United Kingdom ·      Uniper Technologies Limited, Germany
