Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

California is a leader in addressing climate change. With some of the strongest decarbonization targets in the country—40 percent emission reductions by 2030, carbon neutrality by 2045, and net-negative emissions thereafter—California continues to pursue innovative policies to achieve ambitious emissions reductions. The Stanford Center for Carbon Storage and EFI recently released a joint study analyzing key options, including a set of technologies and support infrastructure for Carbon Capture and Storage that could enable some “quick wins”. CCS, like all other emission reduction technologies, is not a “silver bullet” technology for decarbonization. Carbon capture paired with permanent geologic storage offers a viable and important option for reducing emissions from the industrial and electricity sectors that are key contributors to California’s economy and the reliability of its grid. With CCS, these facilities and sectors could be rapidly decarbonized and continue to make major contributions to the state’s economy while helping it meet its near-term and midcentury climate targets.
