The Carbon Storage Program, implemented by the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) within the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Fossil Energy (FE), developes and advances CCS technologies both onshore and offshore that will significantly improve the effectiveness of the technology, reduce the cost of implementation, and be ready forwidespread commercial deployment in the 2025-2035 timeframe. To accomplish widespread deployment, technical and economic barriers must be addressed and data and information generated and communicated to inform regulators and industry on the safety and permanence of CCS. The Program is comprised of three principal elements: Core R&D, Infrastructure, and Global Collaborations – the integration of these elements will address technological and marketplace challenges.
