The U.S. Department of Energy’s Supercritical Transformational Electric Power (STEP) program is awarding a total of $3.9 million to three competitively-selected teams to develop conceptual plans to support the design, cost and schedule for a 10 MWe (megawatts electrical) Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (sCO2) Brayton Cycle test facility. The awardees selected for funding are Echogen Power Systems in Ohio, the Gas Technology Institute in Illinois, and the Southwest Research Institute in Texas.
Work by the three teams will support the future commercialization of sCO2 Brayton cycle energy conversion systems to help meet national climate and energy goals, promote domestic job creation, facilitate industrial competitiveness, maintain U.S. technology leadership, and provide the nation with cleaner and more affordable power.
