Carbon Capture in California: Part of a Statewide, Net-Zero Strategy

Past Event

November 18, 2020

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) technologies and approaches are critical to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation, industrial, and power sectors, and a key ingredient to creating a more sustainable and equitable energy system. Implementing CCUS more broadly will require navigating technology, policy, and science issues at the state and national level and attention to a broad set of equity and environmental justice concerns.

“Carbon Capture in California” is the second event in a series of panels being convened as part of the Women In Energy CCUS Roadshow. These conversations highlight experts in the field of CCUS with a special focus on local policy and deployment. Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy’s Carbon Management Research Initiative and Women in Energy program are pleased to host this panel of exceptional leaders to discuss the vital role of carbon capture in greenhouse gas emissions reductions and carbon dioxide removal.  

We will discuss the status of carbon removal technology world-wide and in California,  including how carbon removal technology fits into strategies to address climate change and bring global greenhouse gas emission to the equivalent of zero; how it can contribute to a more just energy transition, and how to assure safe and effective deployment of the technology. The panel will discuss recent analysis by Stanford University and the Energy Futures Initiative on carbon capture and storage, state and federal regulations, and technological advances in carbon dioxide use and removal, and efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the industrial sector.
