Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (IDAES)

The Institute for the Design of Advanced Energy Systems (IDAES) will be the world’s premier resource for the development and analysis of innovative advanced energy systems through the use of process systems engineering tools and approaches. IDAES and its capabilities will be applicable to the development of the full range of advanced fossil energy systems, including chemical looping and other transformational CO2 capture technologies, as well as integration with other new technologies such as supercritical CO2. In addition, the tools and capabilities will be applicable to renewable energy development, such as biofuels, green chemistry, Nuclear and Environmental Management, such as the design of complex, integrated waste treatment facilities.

IDAES is led by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) with participants from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), Carnegie-Mellon University, West Virginia University, and the University of Notre Dame.

The IDAES leadership team is:

  • David C. Miller, Technical Director
  • Anthony Burgard, NETL PI
  • Deb Agarwal, LBNL PI
  • John Siirola, SNL PI
