GAIN Coalition Applauds DOE Investment in Energy Infrastructure

Today, the Department of Energy announced that it is awarding three U.S. developers $890 million for carbon capture projects in North Dakota, Texas, and California.

Carbon capture has been a controversial topic among climate activists despite its potential to drastically reduce carbon in the atmosphere, counteracting emissions from energy production and consumption. These three projects alone could capture enough carbon each year to offset the carbon emissions of 1.7 million cars.

“It is refreshing to see this administration investing in innovative energy infrastructure,” said GAIN spokesperson Craig Stevens. “Carbon capture is a promising technology that can help lower emissions without jeopardizing affordable, reliable energy for Americans nationwide. This announcement is emblematic of an all-of-the-above approach to energy policy, which promotes all types of energy infrastructure to lower prices and support American jobs.”
