CCUS AND CARBON REMOVAL POLICY TRENDS

The U.S. Chamber is convening our members and national energy and climate experts to highlight the need to fund the innovation programs authorized in the Energy Act of 2020, including the important role of carbon removal, and carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) in achieving global and national climate goals. In this webinar, experts will explore the status of and outlook for carbon removal and CCUS technologies in light of recent legislative changes, as well as the next set of policies necessary to accelerate their scaling and adoption.

PERMITTING AND TRANSMISSION

As demand for cleaner energy sources continues to grow, the need to build new energy infrastructure is greater than ever.  However, the byzantine federal permitting process is neither predictable, nor transparent, and inhibits capital investment to bring new energy platforms to market, including non-emitting electricity generation and transmission.  This webinar will highlight the inefficiencies of the permitting process as well as common sense, bipartisan solutions to unlock investment in the next generations of energy infrastructure.

ALTERNATIVE VEHICLES AND FUELS

The transportation sector accounts for the largest share of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.  As governments at the federal, state, and local level look for ways to reduce these emissions, this webinar will look at lower-emitting technologies like electric and hydrogen vehicles, challenges to adoption, and opportunities for infrastructure buildout.

CRITICAL MINERALS

Critical minerals, including rare earth elements are fundamental components to many emerging and important United States industries, including defense, renewable energies, electric vehicles, medical equipment, and consumer goods. The U.S. previously was a world leader in the production and processing of certain critical minerals though today it is extremely reliant upon other countries for its supply. This webinar will look at how both the demand and supply have quickly evolved and how new policies are necessary to facilitate increased domestic development and new sources around the globe.
