Energy Innovation Month: Presentation
What is RF XL? A ‘Bridge’ to A Clean Energy Future - offering near-zero GHG emissions in petroleum production. Since RF XL can be fully powered by renewable electricity, nuclear, or other clean power sources, this electromagnetic heating technology produces near-zero GHG emissions; very different from net-zero GHG emissions resulting from carbon offsets. This presentation was recorded and previewed during Energy Now's "2021 Energy Innovation Month" on June 16, 2021.
