LCRI, the only international collaboration to accelerate development, demonstration, and deployment of hydrogen at scale and other low-carbon energy technologies and fuels, continues to garner industry support, surpassing 50 members. The Low-Carbon Resources Initiative (LCRI), led by GTI Energy and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), recently added ConocoPhillips, East Kentucky Power Authority, and TECO Energy as partners.

Founded in 2020, LCRI is a unique, five-year initiative that brings together industry stakeholders to advance global, economy-wide decarbonization by 2050. Leveraging GTI Energy and EPRI’s collaborative research, the program focuses on enabling large-scale demonstration and deployment of hydrogen, ammonia, biofuels, synthetic fuels, and other low-carbon energy carriers.

These latest companies join a diverse group of energy stakeholders committed to meeting aggressive emissions reductions goals and advancing the technologies needed to get there. See the complete list of LCRI partners here.

“The industry-wide support for the LCRI illustrates the urgent need to develop and demonstrate low-carbon resource technologies,” said Mike Rutkowski, GTI Energy senior vice president, Research and Technology Development. “This is a great example of how the power of collaboration can accelerate and de-risk solutions.”

“Global challenges to reducing carbon emissions require global solutions, and that strikes at the heart of why LCRI was founded,” said Neva Espinoza, EPRI vice president of Energy Supply and Low-Carbon Resources. “Working together with our 50-plus members, LCRI is leading the charge by driving innovation that is key to a clean energy future.”

LCRI is also working closely with government and academic experts across the globe, and strengthening its ties with strategic partners, including state and federal agencies.

In October 2021, LCRI initiated its first demonstration project, blending hydrogen in a natural gas turbine. The findings from that project will be made available to inform the power industry. More demonstration projects are planned for 2022 across the LCRI research portfolio.
