An Action Plan for Carbon Capture and Storage in California: Opportunities, Challenges and Solutions

2020 Report Launch Announcement Image

On October 20, 2020, Ernest Moniz, Lynn Orr, Melanie Kenderdine and Sally Benson discussed a new joint study by Energy Futures Initiative and Stanford's Center for Carbon Storage. This study analyzes key options, including a set of technologies and support infrastructure for Carbon Capture and Storage, that could enable some “quick wins,” as well as help meet mid-century sustainable development targets.
