Background Information 

On December 12, 2022, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) announced $20 million in funding for projects that will improve stakeholder access to region-specific information and technical assistance regarding the commercial deployment of carbon capture, transport, conversion, and storage technologies across the United States. These technologies work together to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power and industrial facilities, then transport the CO2 for permanent geologic storage or conversion to valuable long-lived products like concrete to reduce negative climate impacts. Large-scale deployment of carbon management technologies is crucial to meeting President Biden’s goal of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

FECM currently supports four regional projects that have already provided technical assistance on secure geologic carbon storage throughout the United States. This funding opportunity will augment these existing efforts by developing new technical assistance and public engagement projects with a more local geographic focus. The projects will provide stakeholders with crucial resources and information necessary to facilitate the regional deployment of large-scale geologic storage facilities or carbon management hubs that could store hundreds of millions of metric tons of CO2 at an injection rate of more than 5 million metric tons per year. This funding also provides the opportunity for DOE to work with State Geologic Surveys and related organizations with unique technical capabilities to identify the potential for these large-scale projects within promising geologic basins in their respective states.

The deadline to submit applications for this funding opportunity has closed.


Eligible applicants include individuals, institutions of higher education, for-profit and non-profit organizations, national laboratories, state and local governments, and Tribal Nations.
