Given the abundant supply of coal in the U.S. and the challenges of substantially scaling up renewable power, fossil fuels are likely to remain a significant source of electricity in this country for decades to come. To limit CO2 emissions from large point sources such as power plants, one promising option is Carbon Capture and Storage: capturing, compressing and transporting CO2 and injecting it into carefully chosen and monitored underground geological formations. This briefing brought together experts from different sectors to discuss the status of efforts to safely and reliably sequester CO2 underground on a scale large enough to impact atmospheric concentrations.
