  • Policy State and utility climate change targets shift to carbon reductions, technology diversity

    The last twelve months have seen a marked shift in state and utility company energy and climate policies towards ambitious carbon targets and an embrace of diverse technologies to achieve them through “Clean Electricity Standards” (or CES’s). This fact sheet documents this trend, and provides a detailed guide to what states and utilities have committed

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy Leveraging Enhanced Oil Recovery for Large-Scale Saline Storage of CO₂

    Leveraging the demand for CO₂ from the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) industry is a critical step to building out a robust ecosystem for large-scale CO₂ storage in saline sites. Frequently asked questions in this fact sheet provide perspective on the role that EOR plays in enabling carbon capture & storage (CCS) technologies to achieve the […]

  • Decarbonized Fossil Energy CO₂ EOR Yields a 37% Reduction in CO₂ Emitted Per Barrel of Oil Produced

    Utilization of anthropogenic CO2 in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is a well-understood and verifiable process that can deliver CO2 emission reductions. According to life cycle analysis done by the International Energy Agency (IEA), which includes impacts from potential increase in oil consumption, each metric ton of CO2 utilized in EOR nets a 0.63 ton emission reduction. Said another […]
