Strategic Program Support

Strategic Program Support activities contribute to an integrated approach, helping to ensure CCS technologies are cost-effective and commercially available. The program relies on NETL’s Research and Innovation Center (RIC) and the national laboratory network to complement the program's approach to reducing CO2 emissions. The program also relies on international collaborations. DOE is partnering with several international organizations, such as the International Energy Agency’s Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme, the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum, and the North American Carbon Atlas Partnership. DOE is also directly engaged in a number of large-scale CCS demonstration projects around the world, spanning five continents. Information and knowledge attained is captured in Best Practice Manuals, which document lessons learned from the Carbon Storage program’s sponsored activities.

Components


The Strategic Program Support activities rely on integration and collaboration amongst stakeholder groups to facilitate the advancement of technologies and knowledgebase needed for successful CCS. NETL’s Carbon Storage Strategic Program Support activities are being implemented through several initiatives that include:

NATCARB - The National Carbon Sequestration Database and Geographic Information System (NATCARB) is a geographic information system (GIS)-based tool developed to provide a view of CCS potential.
