Background Information   

On Feb. 23, 2023, U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED) issued a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for up to $820 million of federal funding at a maximum of 70% federal cost share for up to 10 carbon capture large-scale pilot projects designed to further the development of transformational technologies that capture carbon emissions from existing coal or natural gas electric generation facilities and existing industrial facilities not purposed for electric generation. 

This FOA seeks projects that will de-risk transformational carbon capture technologies and address community concerns through meaningful engagement and robust analysis of impacts, risks and benefits such as emissions, water usage, and jobs, and catalyze private sector follow-on investments for first-of-a-kind commercial-scale demonstrations on carbon emission sources across the power and industrial sectors. 


Eligible applicants include institutions of higher education, non-profit entities, for-profit entities, Tribal nations, state and local governmental entities, incorporated Consortia, and unincorporated Consortia.
