"Optimal Spatial Deployment of Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Given a Price on Carbon Dioxide"

Journal Article, International Regional Science Review, Special Issue for ISOLDE XI

By Michael J. Kuby, Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009 and Richard S. Middleton

Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) links together technologies that separate carbon dioxide (CO2) from fixed point source emissions and transport it by pipeline to geologic reservoirs into which it is injected underground for long-term containment. Previously, models have been developed to minimize the cost of a CCS infrastructure network that captures a given amount of CO2. The CCS process can be costly, however, and large-scale implementation by industry will require government regulations and economic incentives. The incentives can price CO2 emissions, through a tax or a cap-and-trade system, or involve the purchase of CO2 by oil companies for enhanced oil recovery from depleted oil fields.

"Learning about Carbon Capture and Storage: Changing Stakeholder Perceptions With Expert Information"

Conference Paper, Energy Procedia

By Jennie Stephens, Former Associate, Energy Technology Innovation Policy, Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009 and Gabriel Rand

This paper explores stakeholders’ perceptions of the risks and benefits of CCS technology, and how those perceptions changed with additional information provided by CCS technology experts.

Public Perception of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology Workshop

Event Report

By Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009 and Jennie Stephens, Former Associate, Energy Technology Innovation Policy

On June 2-3, 2008, ETIP hosted a workshop on "Public Perception of Carbon Capture and Storage Technology."

"Returns to Scale in Carbon Capture and Storage Infrastructure and Deployment"

Discussion Paper

By Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009

In this Belfer Center discussion paper, Bielicki describes SimCCS, a cost-minimizing geospatial deployment model used to deploy CCS for a variety of combinations of CO2 sources and injection reservoirs. The purpose of SimCCS is to determine the returns to scale for CCS deployment and to unravel the determinants thereof.

"Building a World that Buries Climate Change"

Presentation

By Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009

In this presentation on Capture and Storage (CCS), given at Clark University on October 18, 2007, Jeff Bielicki focuses on the interactions between technology, policy, economics, regulation, legal liability, and social acceptance - how each is embedded in the other and how each influences each other. He also summarizes the influence of CCS on power plant locations and on coal-to-liquids facilities.

"Getting It Done: The Policy Environment in the US and China"

Book Chapter

By Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009, Aleksandra Kalinowski, Former Visiting Scholar, Energy Technology Innovation Policy Research Group/Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program, 2005-2008 and Lifeng Zhao, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy Research Group/Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program, 2006-2008

The United States and China account for about 43% of global emissions. What are the barriers, incentives and policy solutions to deployment of carbon capture and storage technologies in the world's biggest two CO2-emitting countries?

"On the Influence of Carbon Capture and Storage on the Location of Industrial Facilities"

Presentation

By Jeffrey Bielicki, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group, 2006–2009

Bielicki's presentation addresses the interacting economies of scale associated with CO2 transportation, electricity transmission, and coal shipping. He provides two cases, one for a coal-fired power plant and one for a coal-to-liquids plant.
