Leveling the Playing Field -

Policy Parity for Carbon Capture and Storage Technologies

Janet Gellici, Chief Executive Officer, National Coal Council 
Wednesday, February 10, 2016 ~ 2-3 pm Eastern

In response to a request from U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, the National Coal Council (NCC) prepared a report in November 2015 with detailed recommendations on incentives and policies needed to level the playing field for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies. An earlier report by NCC to the Secretary had recommended the Department of Energy take a stronger position on policy parity for CCS with other low carbon technologies such as renewables.

Janet Gellici returns to the ACC Coal Q&A webcast series to provide a briefing on the findings and recommendations of NCC’s “Policy Parity” white paper, addressing: 

the importance of policy parity for CCS
the status of the current playing field tilted away from coal and CCS

financial and policy measures essential to leveling the playing field
