Friedmann, S.J.; et al. 2020: “Capturing Investment: Policy Design to Finance CCUS Projects in the U.S. Power Sector.”

Friedmann, S.J., Emeka R. Ochu, and Jeffrey D. Brown. 2020: “Capturing Investment: Policy Design to Finance CCUS Projects in the U.S. Power Sector.” New York: Columbia SIPA Center on Global Energy Policy. https://energypolicy.columbia.edu/sites/default/files/file-uploads/CCUS-Finance_CGEP-Report_040220.pdf.

"The authors undertook an analysis to help predict which policy configurations would incentivize widespread deployment of CCUS in the US electric generation industry. We examined a set of options and applied them to representative existing US power plant types—supercritical pulverized coal and natural gas combined cycle—with two ownership/revenue structures: traditionally regulated, vertically integrated investor owned utilities (IOUs) and independent power producers (IPPs) selling to IOUs under regulator-approved contracts."
