Energy Seminar: Andrew Ponec, Antora Energy

Inexpensive, long-duration energy storage is necessary to enable the widespread deployment of renewable energy sources like wind and solar, but existing technologies fall short. To meet this need, Antora Energy is combining high-temperature thermal energy storage with novel, high-efficiency thermophotovoltaic energy conversion. When excess electricity is available – for example, at mid-day in electric power systems with high solar penetration – a resistive element is used to heat an inexpensive thermal storage medium contained in a large, insulated tank.

Energy Seminar: Sustainable Finance

Capital deployment is arguably the most central issue in implementing the Paris Agreement. Experience has shown that there are serious barriers to this expansion, especially across national borders and from developed to developing economies. These problems are now well-known and in need of tailored and site-specific solutions that cover the last mile from pledges to transactions.
