The Carbon Transport and Storage research, development and demonstration (RD&D) program is supporting a foundation for carbon storage by making key investments in advanced technology RD&D, large-scale transport scenarios, commercial-scale storage facilities, and regional hubs.  The Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management is uniquely positioned to support the U.S. as it develops a carbon transport and storage industry at the scale necessary to decarbonize the economy while considering the environmental and social benefits and associated impacts these efforts may have. Critical program components that will help catalyze the growth of carbon capture and storage deployment at-scale include strategies to develop the infrastructure for reliable carbon storage RD&D to improve performance and reduce costs, educational partnerships for growing the workforce, and technology transfer and technical assistance to stakeholders.
