4 companies jointly propose $8B green energy initiative for LA area; Wyoming wind, Utah storage, transmission

Green Car Congress

The project would require construction of one of America’s largest wind farms in Wyoming, one of the world’s biggest energy storage facilities (compressed air energy storage, CAES) in Utah, and a 525-mile electric transmission line connecting the two sites.

DOE-sponsored project shows huge potential for carbon storage in Wyoming; potential for lithium recovery to offset cost

Green Car Congress

The Wyoming Rock Springs Uplift could potentially store 14 to 17 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), according to results from a Department of Energy-sponsored study. This is equal to 250 to 300 years’ worth of CO 2 emissions produced by the Wyoming’s coal-fired power plants and other large regional anthropogenic CO 2 sources at current emission levels.

DOE Regional Partnership Initiates CO2 Injection in Lignite Coal Seam

Green Car Congress

A US Department of Energy/National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) team of regional partners has begun injecting CO 2 into a deep lignite coal seam in Burke County, North Dakota, to demonstrate the economic and environmental viability of geologic CO 2 storage in the US Great Plains region. The seven partnerships form a national network that is investigating the best approaches for capturing and permanently storing CO 2.
