Global Collaborations


The Global Collaborations element includes ongoing partnerships with numerous international organizations to leverage U.S. expertise with other large-scale projects. DOE is partnering with the IEAGHG, the CSLF, the CERC, and is also engaged in a number of large-scale CCS demonstration projects around the world.

Working Relationships and Initiatives

Building global relationships and supporting these projects directly benefits U.S. efforts to develop technologies and tools to meet the strategic goals of the Carbon Storage Program. In addition, these collaborations provide a means to encourage exchanging lessons learned and knowledge sharing between industry and academia. This facilitates the adoption of appropriate technologies and trains personnel in the United States for future careers in the CCS industry throughout the world.

Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF)

Joint efforts by DOE and the U.S. Department of State established the CSLF to facilitate the development of improved cost-effective technologies related to carbon capture, transportation, and long-term storage. Read more about the CSLF.


International Demonstrations

DOE is partnering with several international organizations operating throughout the world to advance research in carbon storage. Read more about International Demonstrations.



IEAGHG experts have endorsed the efforts of DOE’s RCSP Initiative and their large-scale projects as a successful approach to advance CCS in the United States, Canada, and internationally. Read more about IEAGHG.

U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center

CERC facilitates joint research and development on clean energy technology through a collaboration of scientists and engineers from the United States and China. Read more about CERC.
