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.

The Rise of Commercial Fusion Startups: A Brief History of Fusion
Nuclear fusion is what powers the stars and creates many of the elements that make up our universe. A fusion reaction occurs when two elements overcome fundamental forces of nature to join together under high temperatures and pressures. In the process, energy is released, which can be calculated through Einstein’s famous equation E=mc2. Fusion energy […]News & Media
Clean Air Task Force Welcomes Revised 2030 EU Climate Strategy
BRUSSELS, September 17, 2020 — Today, the European Commission released a revised 2030 Climate Target Plan that calls for increased ambition in cutting greenhouse gas emissions 55% below 1990 levels, with actions necessary in all sectors. CATF welcomes the European Commission’s increased ambition on climate and the efforts to accelerate emission reductions in the near term. The Plan states: “The EU needs to raise its ambitions for this decade now and avoid leaving a heavier workload for future […]Decarbonized Fossil Energy
Storing CO2: Planning Tomorrow’s Net-Zero Infrastructure
Experts say that carbon capture to decarbonize energy-intensive industries and reduce historical emissions is an essential part of the world’s pathway to a net-zero emissions future. What is often overlooked, however, is the urgent need to develop CO2 storage infrastructure in saline formations today. After all, how would capturing CO2 from factories or the air reduce emissions if we cannot permanently dispose of […]Advanced Energy Systems
Another Gigawatt-Scale Hydrogen Project Is On The Drawing Board, And This Time It’s Deep “Blue”
While support is growing for the need to decarbonize the global economy, many believe it will be very challenging to get there. And a growing number agree we’ll need all the tools available to us if we’re going to have a shot by mid-century, in time to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Included […]
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.

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.
