Addressing climate change—particularly at reasonable cost—will require advancements in a range of energy-related technologies. This summer, RFF launches the Advanced Energy Technologies Series, and the first of these discussions was on the future of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). On August 13, 2020, we welcomed Dr. Sallie Greenberg (Illinois State Geological Survey) to discuss the state of CCS technology, along with Sarah Forbes (US Department of Energy) to highlight recent CCS policy developments. RFF President Richard G. Newell moderated a Q&A session with both panelists.

About the Advanced Energy Technologies Project
RFF’s Advanced Energy Technologies Project uses new research to incorporate a number of these advanced technologies into our E4ST power sector model, which offers a detailed representation of the grid and is widely used in policy analysis related to power sector decarbonization.
The related events series will cover topics such as advanced nuclear energy, carbon capture and sequestration, enhanced geothermal systems, energy storage, and direct air capture. The series will conclude with two additional events, one focused on innovation-related policy developments in the United States, and one showcasing the results of RFF’s analysis of how various policy proposals will drive investment in and deployment of these technologies.
