Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis (JISEA)
This report quantifies greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the industrial sector and identifies opportunities for non-GHG-emitting thermal energy sources to replace the most significant GHG-emitting U.S. industries based on targeted process-level analysis of industrial heat requirements. The intent is to provide a basis for projecting opportunities for clean energy use; doing so provides a prospectus for small modular nuclear reactors (including nuclear-renewable hybrid energy systems), solar industrial process heat and geothermal energy, according to the authors. They say the report complements analysis of process-efficiency improvement by considering how clean energy delivery and use by industry could reduce GHG emissions.
