Will Donald Trump's support for coal extend to carbon-capture?


Will Donald Trump's support for coal extend to carbon-capture?

Report summary

 A series of events have unfolded recently that have brought carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology back into the spotlight. On the campaign trail, candidate Trump said he would support clean coal and promote policies to put coal miners back to work.
Regulatory uncertainty over CO2 emissions intersected a period of ultra low-cost shale gas production making coal investment projects too risky for many utilities and investors to take on. As a result of the on-going uncertainty around new coal-fired generation, the average age of the existing US coal fleet has grown to 42 years. Using a 70 year age limitation, the existing US coal fleet could be diminished by 1/3 of its capacity by 2040.
Addressing this concern may be a first step toward reinvigorating CCS. technology and setting a floor for falling coal demand.
