Carbon Management


To achieve mid-century decarbonization goals, carbon capture projects and infrastructure must be built at a large scale, and in an accelerated timeframe.

Our goal is to accelerate commercial deployment of carbon capture from power plants and industrial facilities to take full economic advantage of our nation’s energy resources, protect and create high-wage jobs, and meet mid-century goals for reducing U.S. and global carbon emissions. Carbon capture can reduce emissions in key industries, and is the only technology available to manage emissions from a number of industrial processes essential to modern economies. It can also can be paired with bioenergy projects to produce energy with net zero or negative CO2 emissions. We engage a broad set of interests at the federal and state levels to advance financial incentives and other policies that will drive investment in and deployment of carbon capture and CO2 pipeline infrastructure projects.

 

Geography
This work is national in scope, including focused work at the federal level and complementary initiatives among more than a dozen states across the U.S.

Our Goals


Over the next three years, our goals are to:

  • Build support for enactment of targeted federal and state carbon capture incentives by 2020 through the coordinated efforts of a a national coalition of industry, labor, and NGOs and of a 14-state work group convened by governors. These incentives are key to bring costs down to a level competitive with conventional power generation and industrial processes will then enable economy-wide adoption of carbon capture during the period 2030 to 2050.
  • Build support for incentives and other policies to facilitate the development and financing of critical trunk CO2 pipelines to states and regions that are underserved or lack the infrastructure to transport CO2 from power plants and industrial facilities to geologic formations where it can be safely and permanently stored.
  • Advocate for continued robust federal research and development to help a variety of next generation carbon capture and utilization technologies reach the point of commercial deployment in the marketplace.

Carbon Capture Coalition

Carbon Capture Coalition was formed to help realize CO2’s full potential as a national energy security, economic, and environmental strategy. Organized by the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and the Great Plains Institute (GPI), the Carbon Capture Coalition brings together a broad and unusual coalition of executives from industry; state officials, legislators and regulators; and environmental and labor representatives.
