Carbon Negative Shot MRV Listening Session

To advance the development of the emerging and necessary carbon dioxide removal industry, the Department of Energy launched Carbon Negative Shot, the third target within DOE’s Energy Earthshots Initiative.

Carbon Negative Shot is an all-hands-on-deck call for innovation in carbon dioxide removal pathways that will capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and durably store it at gigaton scales for less than $100/net metric ton of CO2-equivalent. To put this into perspective, one gigaton of CO2 is equivalent to the annual emissions from approximately 250 million vehicles driven in one year. Carbon dioxide removal (CDR), in conjunction with aggressive decarbonization, is a climate-critical activity required to reach our nation’s climate goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

The Carbon Negative Shot Summit convened industry innovators, environmental and climate justice organizations, labor unions, academia, government leaders, and many more in order to increase collaboration to advance deployment of commercially viable, just, and sustainable carbon dioxide removal in the United States.

To support this effort, the United States Energy Association in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (DOE-FECM) would like to invite you to participate in a Listening Session on Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) to:

1. Encourage stakeholders to connect with each other and learn about their respective efforts related to CDR

2. Inform future DOE priorities based on barriers stakeholders identify (opportunistically)

3. Inform stakeholders about what DOE is working on related to carbon removal, and increase engagement in these efforts from the private sector
