Allam-Fetvedt Cycle: The Next Generation of Thermal Power Generation From Natural & Renewable Gas

Making Environmental Economical

The mission of NET Power is to provide advanced clean energy to consumers worldwide by generating lower-cost power with zero emissions.

Our revolutionary Allam-Fetvedt Cycle promises the only immediately available technology that allows the world to meet its climate goals without paying more for electricity.

Nothing but NET

NET Power’s breakthrough technology, the Allam-Fetvedt Cycle, converts natural and renewable gas into zero emissions power. And the cycle doesn’t just reduce the world’s carbon footprint. It also lowers the price of energy.

In May of 2018, our test facility in La Porte, Texas achieved first fire, proving the technology works and becoming the world’s first large-scale supercritical carbon dioxide power plant.

We are determined and capable of meeting the world’s climate goals of net zero by 2050.

Learn more about the Allam-Fetvedt Cycle and where history was made.

Allam-Fetvedt Cycle: The Next Generation of Thermal Power Generation From Natural & Renewable Gas

2008


Economic crisis spurs 8 Rivers Capital to design a new way to generate power without emitting carbon dioxide.

2010


NET Power is founded on January 8, 2010.

8 Rivers Capital makes the first investment and provides on-going vision, technology development, engineering, sales, marketing and project development support.

Both organizations are headquartered and co-located at the historic American Tobacco Campus in Durham, North Carolina.

2012


McDermott becomes the second investor, advancing technology from concept to reality. They provide petrochemical engineering, procurement and construction expertise.

2014


Exelon becomes the third investor, providing extensive power generation and operational experience.

2016


Construction on the 50 MWt La Porte, Texas testing facility begins in March, rivaling the world’s most elite facilities including NASA.

2018


The La Porte demonstration and testing facility achieves a key milestone—combustor first fire—and becomes the world's first large-scale supercritical carbon dioxide power plant.

2018


OXY Low Carbon Ventures becomes the fourth investor, providing global CO2 storage expertise.
La Porte Texas Power Plant Carbon Neutral Zero Emissions

2020


Multiple projects are in development worldwide for rapid global deployment of commercial units.

2050


The world meets its climate goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

We make existing power plants
economically and environmentally obsolete.

Zero
Emissions

No air pollutants.

Lower
Power Costs

The Allam-Fetvedt Cycle reuses CO2, which drives efficiency and reduces the cost of electricity.

Complements
Renewables

NET Power is the perfect zero emissions match for intermittent renewable energy thanks to its inherent energy storage capabilities and output flexibility.

Multiple
Revenue Streams

Rather than emitting greenhouse gases, industrially useful and valuable CO2 is captured and salable, along with other industrial gas coproducts (Argon and Nitrogen).

Made for
Anywhere

The NET Power technology solution is tailored to market needs: 
it complements current infrastructure, is available in multiple size variations, is compatible with low-grade fuels, is capable of water-free production, has a significantly smaller land footprint and is universally permittable.

Our differentiation is unequalled.
