Public Policy Forum (2020): Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage — The Time is Now

Public Policy Forum (2020): Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage — The Time is Now.

"This paper reflects a strong consensus within the Energy Future Forum that any achievable pathway to national climate and economic objectives must include a significant contribution from carbon capture technologies and from utilization and storage. In any post-COVID, “green stimulus” planning, support for CCUS expansion is even more pivotal than before."

Thrän, Daniela; et al. (2020): Roles of bioenergy in energy system pathways towards a “well-below-2-degrees-Celsius (WB2)” world

Thrän, Daniela; Cowie, Annette; Berndes, Göran (2020): Roles of bioenergy in energy system pathways towards a “well-below-2-degrees-Celsius (WB2)” world. Workshop report and synthesis of presented studies. IEA BioEnergy.

"Under the IEA Bioenergy Inter-task project ‘The Role of Bioenergy in a WB2/SDG world’, a workshop was held in Berlin, on 25 November 2019. The objective of the workshop was to examine, synthesize and disseminate information from recent studies that investigate how bioenergy and associated technologies may contribute to achieving the reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are needed to meet the WB2 target. The report summarises the workshop contributions and discussions, assesses the role of bioenergy in WB2 strategies, identifies the current state of knowledge as well as gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed."
