NCC: Why We Should Speed Deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology

Society faces the twin energy challenges of providing affordable electricity to satisfy continued global demand and creating electricity access for billions who lack proper power.  Carbon capture and storage technology is an essential large-scale technology to alleviate carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel use in the power and industrial sectors.

The National Coal Council has released a new study detailing the cost, safety and technical operation of carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS). The study, “Fossil Forward – Revitalizing CCS:  Bringing Scale and Speed to CCS Deployment,” calls for urgent action from industry and governments to develop the technology, business models and incentive framework to drive broad deployment of the technology. The report was prepared in response to a request from the U.S. Secretary of Energy.
