CCUS webinar 21 January: A roadmap to at-scale deployment of CCUS in the United States
In 2017, the U.S. Secretary of Energy tasked the National Petroleum Council (NPC) to study the actions needed to deploy CCUS technologies at scale in the United States. Now completed, this 18-month study and final report involved over 300 participants from diverse backgrounds and organizations, with most from outside the oil and natural gas industry. The United States leads the world in CCUS deployment today with approximately 80% of the world’s CO2 capture capacity, but this represents less than 1% of the U.S. CO2 emissions from stationary sources. Increasing deployment can deliver benefits and favorably position the U.S. to participate in new market opportunities as the world transitions to a lower carbon energy system.
The roadmap builds the case for CCUS in the United States, and details three phases of specific, actionable recommendations needed to achieve deployment at scale over the next 25 years. The roadmap stresses that at-scale deployment requires strong collaboration between industry and government; improved policies, financial incentives, and regulations; broad-based innovation and technology development; and increased understanding and confidence in CCUS. Along with significant reduction in U.S. stationary source emissions and related environmental benefits, implementation of the recommendations in this report can create domestic jobs, benefit the economy, and augment energy security priorities.
The webinar will be held on Tuesday, January 21st at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5) / 14:00 Central European Time (UTC+1). The session will last approximately one hour. The event will be hosted by the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The webinar presentation will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
