Stacey Dahl, senior manager of external affairs for Minnkota Power Cooperative, joined co-hosts Kate Muggerud and Geoff Simon on this week’s podcast titled “Mined: Lignite Energy in America.”
Stacey discusses the challenges facing Minnkota Power Cooperative regarding Project Tundra and how the work is progressing. Project Tundra would be the world’s largest CO2 capture project at an existing power plant.
She said Minnkota Power Cooperatives believes in lignite-based generation as the backbone of their generation mix and is currently working on building a business case that makes sense for implementing this new technology to capture and store CO2 collected during the generation of affordable and reliable electricity.
Kate and Geoff work as a team to conduct the interviews with leaders in North Dakota’s energy industry on a variety of topics. The goal of these podcasts is to connect with others who have the same interest and wish to become more knowledgeable about energy and emerging technologies.
Mined: Lignite Energy in America is sponsored and produced by the Lignite Energy Council, a trade association representing the power plants, mines and the Great Plains Synfuels Plant in North Dakota along with more than 300 companies that provide goods and services to the lignite industry.
