CES Joins EPRI-Led Research Team to Conduct Initial Assessment of Large-Scale Carbon Storage in California

CES has teamed with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to conduct an initial assessment of the development of a commercial-scale, integrated carbon capture and storage facility in California’s southern San Joaquin Valley. The preliminary feasibility study will investigate technical, economic, social, and regulatory challenges and solutions related to the development of a large-scale facility that can safely store over 50 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). The work is being funded under the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Carbon Storage Assurance Facility Enterprise initiative, which seeks to help mitigate CO2 emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.
