On 16 June 2022, the Global CCS Institute held its 10th Annual D.C. Forum on Carbon Capture and Storage in Washington D.C. and online.

The D.C. Forum is an opportunity for policymakers, industry leaders, NGOs, journalists, and financial institutions, to gather and discuss the rise of CCS, as well as the urgency of increasing support for the enabling conditions needed to take it to scale. During the event, we explored with experts in the field various key topics related to CCS, including:

  • Exciting developments in the US climate and energy policy and the role of CCS in reaching global climate goals
  • The importance of including environmental justice and the frontline communities’ perspectives in the conversation about CCS and climate action
  • The main challenges and opportunities in public, private and hybrid models of funding for CCS development
  •  The top technological developments and innovative business models from across the CCS spectrum
