Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy

AFS collaborates with others in industry in Renewable Energy Research and Development. For example, AFS currently collaborate with Alstom Grid in a contract with DOE to study the integration of wind resources into the power grid. AFS also works closely with AREVA Renewables to explore R&D and demonstration opportunities with DOE.

  • Bio-energy

    Bioenergy

    AREVA is the #1 global bioenergy provider for 10 MW+ solutions. Using sustainable farming and forestry practices for fuel, an AREVA biopower plant can generate up to 55 MWs of electricity. These projects can create 400 direct jobs during construction and more than 100 direct jobs during permanent operation.

  • Energy Storage

    Energy Storage

    Smoothing out the intermittent power generation of some renewable energy sources to achieve baseload grid parity is critical for renewable energy’s future growth. As part of AREVA’s broad portfolio, we are researching and developing next-generation energy storage technologies, including hydrogen energy storage and distribution.

  • Clean Energy Park

    Clean Energy Park

    Nuclear and renewables are the most effective technologies for producing low-carbon power to supply baseload. They provide utilities with a hedge against fuel and CO2 costs, have an unparalleled safety record, and generate significant added value locally, through jobs creation. AREVA combines these benefits in our Clean Energy Park concept by co-locating nuclear and renewable energy sources for reliable and affordable power generation, with minimal environmental impact.
