Technology to Achieve 'Net Zero'

Net zero target

Addressing the climate crisis requires scaling existing solutions, while investing in innovation to develop additional solutions, enabling multiple pathways to reach global net zero emissions. The US has established an economy-wide target of reducing its net greenhouse gas emissions by 50-52% below 2005 levels, by 2030. US climate policies and regulations demonstrate its commitment to the creation of quality work and jobs as an integral part of its efforts to combat climate change.

Other policies

The US Environmental Protection Agency has recently proposed new regulations which would require all large fossil fuel power plants to either use carbon capture technology by 2035, or to deploy low carbon Hydrogen to achieve equivalent emissions carbon by 2038. While likely to be subject to legal challenge, if implemented the regulations will provide a further incentive for deployment of carbon capture technology.
