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.
