The mission of the Technology Assessment team is to evaluate the status and prospects of the energy areas included in the GCEP technology portfolio. The group analyzes the potential of the various energy resources and technologies to provide energy at a large scale and to enable the reduction of greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere. The assessment includes considerations on resource availability and theoretical efficiency limits, and aims at identifying technology barriers, step-out approaches, and opportunities for fundamental research in a specific energy technology.
Output of the Technology Assessment effort include workshops at Stanford and elsewhere that foster high-level discussion amongst experts about specific technologies, and reports to provide the energy community with updated analyses of the status and opportunities in energy areas.
