The Clean Air Task Force focuses on mitigating CO2 by promoting carbon capture and storage policies, low-carbon energy innovation, renewable energy, and nuclear power. The Task Force also focuses on high-potency pollutants like methane and black carbon. Its priorities in 2019-20 are to increase incentives for carbon capture at the federal and state level, reform the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s nuclear innovation processes, and foster business-to-business partnerships in the U.S. and China for zero-carbon innovation. The Task Force’s approach to the climate-driven energy transition focuses on the deep decarbonization necessary to achieve a 2-degree goal.
