The future of electric generation is being shaped by carbon dioxide regulation, which is currently in an uncertain posture. On the heels of the historic Paris agreement, the Clean Power Plan – centerpiece of US carbon reduction policy – has been stayed by the Supreme Court. Moreover, meaningful carbon reductions cannot be made without deployment of carbon capture, utilization, and storage technology (CCUS), a technology that may generate new wealth as it captures emissions. What is the future of US carbon policy, and how is CCUS technology central both to the future of fossil fuels and to meeting climate reduction targets?

We will hear from industry leaders and two CEOs about how their utility is responding to reducing carbon.
