On Wednesday, June 30 at 10:00 am ET, the Labor Energy Partnership launched Building to Net-Zero: A U.S. Policy Blueprint for Gigaton-Scale CO2 Transport and Storage Infrastructure.
The launch webinar featured former U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, President and CEO of EFI, in conversation with David Turk, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy. In December, the Labor Energy Partnership hosted a workshop on CO2 transport and storage infrastructure with key stakeholders from industry, academia, and labor.
Our report presents a policy roadmap to build out CO2 infrastructure while supporting the development of jobs, infrastructure, and robust pathways to net-zero emissions by midcentury. Capturing and removing carbon at a large scale will require support from existing industries and workers to build and operate infrastructure while helping to create new businesses and opportunities for workers in transition.
