Clean and Renewable Energy
TVA supports clean energy and works to minimize the effects of its operations on the environment. That’s why we are developing and evaluating sustainable power generation technologies that emit no or low amounts of carbon into the atmosphere.
That includes renewable sources of energy such as hydropower, wind, solar and biomass; nuclear power; large-scale energy storage; advanced clean fossil power; waste heat and combined heat and power.
TVA’s innovative research investigates the performance, cost, sustainability and availability of clean energy technologies. TVA also partners with external engineering and scientific communities to study these new technologies.
All these efforts make TVA a leader in clean energy research, and put it in a good position to deploy renewable energy sources in the future as they are required.
