Overview
This grant funds collaborative efforts to promote the commercialization of emission-free fossil fuel generation technology—Carbon Capture and Storage. The Great Plains Institute will conduct analysis and policy development, and educate decision makers on the benefits of carbon-free technology. The grantee’s theory of change is to leverage the current practice of enhanced oil recovery where CO2 is mined and pumped into existing oil wells, replace it with CO2 from power plants and industrial facilities, and bring CO2 capture and storage to a commercially viable scale.

for general operating support  
The Great Plains Institute works on solutions that reduce and ultimately eliminate carbon emissions, while strengthening communities and providing greater economic opportunity through creation of high-paying jobs, expansion of the nation’s industrial base, and increased domestic energy independence. Of particular importance is the role that the institute plays in building support for carbon capture and carbon dioxide removal projects and policies in the Mountain, Plains, and Midwestern states. This includes hosting and staffing the 75-member national industry, labor, and NGO carbon capture coalition. In addition, the institute organizes CO2NNECT, the premier annual national leadership event on carbon capture, to elevate policy, technology, and communications priorities.
