Today, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) selected two projects to receive nearly $2 million in federal funding for cost-shared research and development under funding opportunity announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0002399, Water Management for Thermal Power Generation.

In the U.S., a power generation energy transition toward lower carbon intensity technologies is underway. This decarbonization may come in many forms, including carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) or optimizing asset utilization through water treatment and heat rate improvements. To enable a low-carbon future that minimizes environmental impacts, additional innovation is needed to reduce the freshwater intensity of power generators. Other innovations can provide additional treated non-traditional water (for example, brackish groundwater) for low-carbon purposes such as hydrogen production and carbon capture and storage.

The selected projects will support the design, construction and operation of engineering-scale prototypes of water treatment technologies for the existing and future fleet of thermoelectric power plants. Power plant owners, operators and technology developers will collaborate and advance near-term water treatment solutions for commercial deployment.

The two projects, which will be managed by NETL, are described below:
