About the Briefing
The briefing will provide an introduction to carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon removal technologies and how they can deliver deep emissions reductions alongside other clean and renewable sources of energy in California's energy transition to a zero-carbon economy. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C includes CCS in 3 of 4 pathways leading to net-zero emissions by mid-century. In 2018, policies and projects progressed globally and California included a CCS protocol in its Low Carbon Fuel Standard. Join us for an informative discussion about this set of clean energy technologies.
