Opening Remarks


8:10-8:20, August 13


Robert C. Armstrong is MITEI’s director and the Chevron Professor of Chemical Engineering. A member of the MIT faculty since 1973, Armstrong served as head of the Department of Chemical Engineering from 1996 to 2007 and has directed MITEI since 2013, after serving as the organization’s deputy director from 2007-2013 with founding director Ernest Moniz. His research is focused on pathways to a low-carbon energy future.

Armstrong has been elected into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2020) and the National Academy of Engineering (2008). He received the 2006 Bingham Medal from the Society of Rheology, which is devoted to the study of the science of deformation and flow of matter, and the Warren K. Lewis Award and the Professional Progress Award in 1992, both from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

Armstrong was a member of MIT’s Future of Natural Gas and Future of Solar Energy study groups. He advised the teams that developed MITEI’s most recent reports, The Future of Nuclear Energy in a Carbon-Constrained World (2018) and Insights into Future Mobility (2019), and is co-chairing the new MITEI study, The Future of Storage. He co-edited Game Changers: Energy on the Move with former U.S. Secretary of State George P. Shultz.

Stable Salt Reactors - A New Platform Technology in Nuclear Fission


8:20-9:10, August 13


Stable Salt Reactors (SSR’s) are a new platform technology in nuclear fission. They are based on the globally patented breakthrough in understanding that nuclear reactors could gain all the enormous intrinsic safety and cost benefits of using molten salt fuel by simply putting that molten fuel into essentially conventional fixed fuel assemblies. This eliminates at a stroke the new hazards, and hence costs, of having to pump that intensely radioactive fuel around a chemical engineering plant that would be extraordinarily challenging to maintain and which would require a certainty of not leaking never achieved before in such a plant.

The first reactor to be developed within this platform is the SSR-W where the W stands for wasteburner. It is a fast spectrum reactor fueled with a mixture of higher actinides extracted from spent conventional nuclear fuel. Very low purity of those higher actinides is acceptable in the SSR-W fuel, indeed it is preferred for non-proliferation reasons. As a result, a radically simpler process for extracting those actinides from spent fuel can be used. This process (WATTS, Waste To Stable Salts) has been patented and is now under development in Canada in conjunction with Canadian Nuclear Laboratories.

The “First of a Kind” SSR-W, a 300MWe single unit, is being developed in conjunction with New Brunswick Power in Canada with the intention of deployment at the Point Lepreau reactor site before the end of the decade.  Canada would then become the center of the global export market for this reactor. The design is part way through the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s Vendor Design Review. This early regulatory engagement has been of great value in identifying and, to the extent possible, eliminating design factors that might slow the licensing of the reactor. New details of the design following this regulatory engagement will be shared during this talk.

Nanoscale Design for High Energy Batteries

9:10-10:00, August 13


The demand from portable electronics and electric vehicles call for high energy batteries beyond the current lithium ion batteries. Here I will present our recent progress on materials and interfacial design to enable much high energy density batteries, which include 1) High capacity Si anodes with success in commercialization; 2) Li metal anodes: host and interface design to over the lithium metal dendrite formation and interfacial instability; 4) Sulfur as an earth abundant material for high capacity cathodes; 4) Our pioneering development of cryogenic electron microscopy for understanding the battery materials and solid-electrolyte interphase down to atomic scale resolution.

The Green Energy Revolution is Finally Here


10:25-11:15, August 13


COVID-19 has altered energy consumption patterns worldwide, and highlighted both inequality and systemic racism, including in the energy field.

A clean energy research and deployment agenda can greatly facilitate the movement to a just and inclusive society. In this work I highlight both theoretical and implementation strategies that are built around key synergies between clean energy and water, and social justice. This nexus opens important new avenues for use-inspired basic and applied research.

In this paper we draw on research in the U.S., and from East Africa and Southeast Asia, where the majority of the roughly 800 million people without electricity access live today.   In the United States, California, New Mexico, and New York (over 40% of national GDP) have committed to a 100% renewable energy future (by ~ 2045). Overseas an increasing number of nations and subnational regions have committed to this goal.

In exploring the synergies between a green economy and social equity, we find that it is either impossible, or far more difficult and costlier, to design, socialize, and implement the needed energy transition to meet climate goals without making equity a co-equal goal.  We draw on cases ranging from solar energy and electric vehicle deployment in low-income communities, to promoting social justice and economic opportunities for women and oppressed minority groups through distributed clean-energy powered mini-grids, to the integration of climate friendly housing and transportation policies. This work provides strong evidence of the economic benefits of integrated design of infrastructure and policy around the co-benefits of between social and environmental goals.

Energy Transformations to Meet the Climate Challenge: Advice from the National Academies


11:15-12:05, August 13


For decades, scientists have understood that the key to maintaining a stable climate for Earth is to reduce, if not eliminate, fossil fuel emissions from the energy sector. Some fraction of emissions reductions (~30%) can already be achieved with existing technology – the “low-hanging fruit.” Another 50% of emissions reductions can be accomplished with known solutions, but will require much more effort. The fact that such solutions are not yet widely deployed presents interesting questions for social scientists, including economists, political scientists, and behaviorists. A complete solution to the last 20% of the emissions problem will require overcoming significant challenges, but there are some game-changers on the horizon that can meet our current demands.
