GABI-FNS Capitol Hill Briefing – Integrated Hybrid Energy Systems: Nuclear-Renewable-Thermal Synergies

Please join the Foundation for Nuclear Studies (FNS) and the Global America Business Institute (GABI) on Thursday, July 27th for a Capitol Hill briefing on “Integrated Hybrid Energy Systems: Nuclear-Renewable-Thermal Synergies.”

Increasing penetrations of ever affordable renewable energy, while helpful in mitigating carbon and other atmospheric emissions, are effecting growing challenges related to grid management, power reliability, and dispatchability. With recent advances in control and communications networks, reactor designs, and carbon capture, the integration of various low-carbon energy generation technologies has the potential to concurrently achieve a broad suite of desirable outcomes: reduced emissions and environmental impact, energy system reliability and resilience, electric grid stability, decarbonization of the transportation and industrial sectors, resource optimization, etc.

The briefing will take place at 2325 Rayburn House Office Building and will begin at noon and conclude at 1 p.m. A catered lunch will be served. Please direct any questions to Alan Ahn (GABI) at alanahn [at] thegabi.com or Arianne Price (FNS) at arianne [at] helenmilby.com.
