About NET Power
NET Power is a clean energy technology company with a mission to globally deliver the “Energy Trifecta”: clean, reliable, and low-cost energy. We invent, develop and intend to license technology that provides reliable, on-demand natural gas power with life cycle emissions that are 90 percent below today’s combined cycle natural gas systems and in line with renewables coupled with batteries. Our technology also delivers a levelized cost of energy that is below both combined cycle gas turbines with carbon capture and renewables coupled with batteries. Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Durham, North Carolina, NET Power has received strategic investments from key industry partners including Occidental, Baker Hughes, Constellation and 8 Rivers.
