Low-Carbon Energy Group
To meet global energy demands and at the same time reduce carbon emissions, the world must transition to energy technologies that produce little to no carbon dioxide (CO2).
CMI's Low-Carbon Energy Group is seeking ways to speed that change by making low-carbon energy technologies more cost-effective.
Working with partners in China and Italy, the group studies technologies for capturing CO2 emissions from fossil fuels used in electricity, hydrogen, and synfuels production.
Other research areas include combustion studies of alternative low-carbon fuels and hydrogen, analysis of renewable energy production from biomass and wind sources, and investigations of energy storage technologies.
