Webinar: Energy Storage project development: An Overview of key policy, finance & development issues with K&L Gates

Join us for a Webinar: COVID-19: Impacts on Solar Supply Chain

Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, March 17, discussing the impact of COVID-19 on the solar supply chain. Industry leaders will be hosting a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 related measures on the solar supply chain. Moderated by K&L Gates’ Elizabeth Crouse, panelists will discuss the improving situation in Asia, the Europe travel ban, and concerns about labor and components availability in the United States, with an emphasis on (1) troubleshooting supply chain and development disruption now and as the global manufacturing industry comes back online, and (2) the broader impact of the pandemic on the American solar industry.

Overview of Policy and Technical Progress in Fusion Energy Development Around the World

Authors: Tim L. Peckinpaugh, R. Paul Stimers, James Green, Michael L. O’Neill, Francis E. Iyayi, Abraham F. Johns

Fusion energy is moving towards technological and commercial reality.  Fusion involves the release and harnessing of energy by fusing two atomic nuclei to form a heavier nucleus.  Fusion reactions differ from nuclear fission, which is the splitting of relatively heavy atoms to release energy.  Fusion avoids potential downsides to nuclear fission by leaving behind no long-lived and highly dangerous radioactive waste and creating no risks of a runway chain reaction or meltdown.  Fusion also releases substantially more energy, such that it is capable of replacing fission to become baseload power that operates 24/7 and releases no CO2 emissions.
