Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Sequestration Workshop

May 18, 2015 8:00AM to 4:00PM EDT

National Renewable Energy Laboratory Offices
901 D Street, SW, Suite 930
Washington, D.C.

The Office of Fossil Energy (FE) and the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) in the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is hosting a Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Sequestration (BECCS) Workshop on Monday, May 18, 2015 in Washington, DC.

The BECCS Workshop is being held to focus on low-carbon and carbon-negative power systems and the use of biomass in power generation to achieve lower greenhouse gas emissions in a sustainable manner.  We are seeking input from experts in bioenergy, power generation, and transmission and distribution infrastructure from industry, academia, non-profit organizations, government, and national laboratories.

This invite-only workshop will open with presentations from DOE leadership and continue with talks from national lab and university experts describing the current status and future pathways of BECCS technologies. The workshop will also incorporate discussion sessions to facilitate future research and development ideas and collect valuable input from all participants. The results from these discussion sessions along with follow-up comments and inputs collected after the workshop will be compiled into a workshop report. This report will be used to assist DOE leadership in identifying opportunities for technology development and deployment in the power industry, as well as to assist FE and BETO in strategic planning for future program activities.
