Decarbonization

Decarbonization means eliminating GHG emissions from industry and the grid.

Low carbon or carbon free solutions are emerging across industries to drive performance, lower lifecycle costs, and improve resilience. Electrification is driving demand in every sector and “hard to abate” industries are innovating with green hydrogen, CCUS, and DAC.
At Valo, we are investing in solutions that:

  • Generate

    Making, storing, and distributing the lowest-cost, most abundantly available energy to achieve hourly-matched, 24x7, flexible carbon-free energy at grid-scale.

  • Electrify

    Electrifying everything—from transportation and heating to material and food production systems—while also improving energy efficiency in existing processes.

  • Remove

    Reducing GHG emissions from legacy processes, capturing any remaining carbon dioxide or methane, and recirculating hydrocarbons as a valuable resource.
