Overview
This grant will support the Institute’s work, including researching the efficacy of scaling Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in key states and creating an analytical framework to help policymakers determine if increased federal support for CCS research, development, and deployment is warranted. Most climate models — including those of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and International Energy Agency — involve CCS in meeting a two-degree goal. The Institute is collaborating with eight organizations at the state and federal level, and working with the Department of Energy (DOE) to research cleaner and more cost-effective CCS options, which countries like India and China can leverage.

Grants to this Grantee
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.
