Webinar: Mission Innovation: Carbon Capture Innovation Challenge
17th July 2017
Mission Innovation aims to reinvigorate and accelerate global clean energy innovation with the objective to make clean energy widely affordable. Through a series of Innovation Challenges, member countries have pledged to support actions aimed at accelerating research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) in technology areas where MI members believe increased international attention would make a significant impact in our shared fight against climate change. The Innovation Challenges cover the entire spectrum of RD&D; from early stage research needs assessments to technology demonstration projects.
The Carbon Capture Innovation challenge aims to explore early stage research opportunities in the areas of Carbon Capture, Carbon Utilization, and Carbon Storage. The goal of the Carbon Capture Innovation Challenge is twofold: first, to identify and prioritize breakthrough technologies; and second, to recommend research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) pathways and collaboration mechanisms.
During the webinar, Dr Tidjani Niass, Saudi Aramco, and Jordan Kislear, US Department of Energy, provided an overview of progress to date. They also highlighted detail opportunities for business and investor engagement, and discuss future plans for the Innovation Challenge.
