Clean Air Task Force Statement on the European Commission’s Methane Strategy
Today the European Commission released the EU’s “methane strategy” which will serve as the starting point for a process to develop legislation to rein in methane pollution. Cutting methane from the oil and gas sector in Europe and from the gas Europe imports is one of the fastest and most effective ways to slow theDecarbonized Fossil Energy
As Europe Progresses Net-Zero Infrastructure US Risks Technology Leadership
Last month the International Energy Agency made headlines with a stark warning about the potential climate impacts of failing to commercialize carbon capture technologies, concluding that it will be “virtually impossible” to reach net-zero emissions without carbon capture. The IEA’s latest carbon capture report also reckoned that with ample geologic storage for CO₂ available, success […]Decarbonized Fossil Energy
Interactive Map of CCUS Projects in Development in the U.S.
The expanded and extended 45Q tax credit for carbon capture, utilization and sequestration (CCUS) projects passed by the U.S. Congress in early 2018 is the most significant carbon capture-specific incentive available, globally, and is spurring the progress of dozens of projects around the country. Other nations that are looking to create successful carbon reduction policies […]
We push the change in technologies and policies needed to get to a zero-emissions, high-energy planet at an affordable cost. Imagine a world where the energy needs of all humans are met efficiently without damaging the atmosphere.

How We're Different
Facilitating the commercialization of emerging and proven climate change mitigation technologies.
Working practically and objectively to catalyze and spark realistic change that leads to major impact through legal and legislative advocacy.
Driving support for the most effective policy and technology strategies.
Examining All Options with an Open Mind
Advanced Energy Systems
Provide the world with a vision of practical, resilient pathways to a zero carbon energy system.
Advanced Nuclear Energy
Create a normal global research and development, commercial, regulatory, and social ecosystem in which nuclear technology can flourish in order to decarbonize global energy production.
Redirect the production and use of bioenergy so that it contributes to—rather than undermines—decarbonization and climate stability.
Decarbonized Fossil Energy
Accelerate the adoption of carbon capture technologies to prevent CO2 emissions from power generation and industrial sources.
Ensure the adoption of U.S. emission standards on U.S. fossil power plants to zero out U.S. power sector carbon emissions by 2050.
Catalyze deep, global reductions in methane and black carbon emissions to help stave off the risk of irreversible changes to our climate.
