Energy Dome gets $44M uplift into its CO2 battery for renewable energy storage

"Storage is important for renewables as major clean sources of energy generation like solar and wind power are variable, since the sun doesn’t always shine nor the wind always blow. This means, not that renewables are useless (as some right-wing politicians have tried to claim) but that decarbonizing the electricity grid using these alternative (green) sources of power requires innovation in storage tech — which is where Energy Dome is aiming to step in with its CO2 Battery."

DOD Advances X-Energy Mobile Nuclear Microreactor as Second Project Pele Design

"An X-energy spokesperson on Thursday told POWER that the company is currently focusing its mobile microreactor work 'around one practical, cost-effective microreactor that can be deployed for use in remote military locations as well as commercial or industrial use.' X-energy’s transportable microreactor 'is designed to generate in the range of 3 to 5 MW and is differentiated to be cost-competitive with remote diesel power. The microreactor is designed to use TRISO-based fuel,' he said."
