Sal Scuderi, Operations Manager for Scuderi Clean Energy, LLC, will discuss the company’s compressed air energy storage (CAES) technology during the “Innovative Technologies in Dam and Hydropower Engineering” program on April 12 in Woburn.Sponsored by the Environmental Business Council New England, Inc., the program will feature presentations on different technologies with unique hydropower applications as well as a discussion about risk and in dam engineering.
Hydropower and dam management has moved more in the spotlight with the anticipated closing of the Plymouth Nuclear Power Plant and the potential loss of 680 megawatts of carbon free power from its Energy Generating Portfolio. State lawmakers are looking at ways to combat this shortfall as well as make the Commonwealth a national leader in energy storage.
Scuderi Clean Energy (SCE) has a patented technology that addresses the concerns of the power industry while providing the best solutions for end users to save money, reduce carbon footprint and coordinate all available assets, including the hydropower, grid, wind, solar, and energy storage.
“In addition, the system acts as a combined heat and power (CHP) unit where it supplies not only electricity to a customer, but also provides all heating requirements,” said Scuderi. “And unlike a conventional CHP system, the Scuderi system does not depend upon a minimum amount of heat being sold to a customer in order to be economically viable.”
