# Energy Department Announces $20 Million for Carbon Programs ## The US Department of Energy has announced up to$20 million in federal funding for cooperative agreements that will help accelerate the deployment of carbon capture, utilization, and storage.

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced up to \$20 million in federal funding for cooperative agreements that will help accelerate the deployment of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). The selected projects will support the Office of Fossil Energy’s (FE) Carbon Storage Program.

“Carbon capture is essential to lowering global carbon emissions,” said US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry. "By accelerating the deployment of this indispensable technology, the United States can continue to use its domestic energy resources for decades to come without compromising the environment.”

Through this funding opportunity, the DOE aims to award cooperative agreements to research and development (R&D) projects that will help identify and address regional storage and transport challenges currently facing the development of CCUS.

This funding opportunity seeks to preserve, share, and advance existing R&D by
