Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Samantha McCulloch, Head of CCUS Unit, International Energy Agency (IEA), presenting at webinar titled CCUS in Clean Energy Transitions on Thursday, November 12, 2020 from 10:00am – 11:00am (MT).
A net-zero energy system requires a profound transformation in the way we produce and use energy that can only be achieved with a broad suite of technologies. Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is the only group of technologies that contributes both to reducing emissions in key sectors directly and to removing CO2 to balance emissions that are challenging to avoid – a critical part of “net” zero goals. After years of slow progress, new investment incentives and strengthened climate goals are building new momentum behind CCUS.
Samantha McCulloch is the Head of the CCUS Unit at the Paris-based International Energy Agency. Her team provides leading analysis and insights on the global development and deployment of carbon capture, utilisation and storage technologies. Samantha is a lead author of several IEA publications, including the Energy Technology Perspectives Special Report: CCUS in Clean Energy Transitions, released in September 2020.
