Mike Howard is the CEO of the Electric Power Research Institute.
Once in a blue moon comes along a big deal, like EPRI and GTI jointly launching the Low Carbon Resources Initiative. The debut of LCRI was virtual of course, and obvious from its name. Like the great space race, this international endeavor aims to propel development and demonstration of low-carbon energy technologies.
The LCRI is a five-year initiative, debuting with eighteen anchor sponsors representing a wide consortium of the energy industry. The mix isn't complete, and LCRI is looking for your company to join in this extraordinary race toward decarbonization. It's your chance to be part of something akin to the moon shot, the lunar landing.
Here, PUF takes you to the beginning of this extraordinary journey, with the online start via virtual roundtable. Whether astronauts on the moon or zero carbon emissions, it isn't often the opportunity arises to be part of a program this remarkable. Listen in as EPRI's CEO, Mike Howard, sets the stage.
EPRI's Mike Howard: This is Mike Howard, CEO at EPRI. I want to welcome you to the official launch of the Low Carbon Resources Initiative, or simply the LCRI. This is the beginning of a journey to make zero carbon emissions a reality, and make the transition thoughtfully, reliably, and affordably. This incredibly important initiative is a major commitment the energy sector is making to help accelerate the deployment of affordable low carbon energy resources.
