Addressing climate change—particularly at reasonable cost—will require advancements in a range of energy-related technologies. The Advanced Energy Technologies Series accompanies the work RFF researchers are undertaking to understand and examine the cost trajectories and future deployment potential of these technologies. Join us on Friday, November 13, for a discussion on the future of direct air capture in mitigating carbon emissions. Negative emissions strategies expert Jennifer Wilcox (World Resources Institute) will explore the current state of direct air capture technologies, the challenges that remain in both development and deployment, and policy drivers impacting the future of direct air capture in the United States. RFF President and CEO Richard G. Newell will then moderate a Q&A session. This event is geared toward audiences with some existing background knowledge of direct air capture topics, although anyone interested in learning about the subject is very welcome to attend.
