The Global CCS Institute was formally launched in 2009 and works to build and share the knowledge and expertise necessary to ensure that carbon capture and storage can make a significant impact on lowering the world's greenhouse gas emissions.



The Big Sky Carbon Sequestration Partnership (BSCSP) is one of the U.S. Department of Energy's seven regional carbon sequestration partnerships. encompasses Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, South Dakota, eastern Washington and Oregon. Its membership includes universities, national laboratories, private companies, state agencies and Native American tribes.



Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium  is one of seven regional partnerships selected by the U.S. Department of Energy to determine the best approaches for capturing and storing carbon dioxide (CO2) that might otherwise contribute to global climate change. It is led by the Illinois State Geological Survey and was created to assess geological carbon se­questration options in the  oval-shaped, geologic feature known as the Illinois Basin.



West Coast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (WESTCARB) is a collaborative research project that brings together dedicated scientists and engineers from more than 90 public agencies, private companies, and nonprofits to identify and validate the best regional opportunities for keeping carbon doixide out of the atmosphere.


The Plains CO2 Reduction (PCOR) Partnership is a collaboration of over 80 U.S. and Canadian stakeholders that is laying the groundwork for practical and environmentally sound CO2 sequestration projects in the heartland of North America.


The Southwest Regional Partnership is composed of a diverse group of experts in geology, engineering, economics, public policy, and outreach. Member states include Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, Kansas, Nevada, Texas, and Wyoming. The group works to evaluate available technologies to capture and to reduce the emissions intensity of greenhouse gases in the southwest region.


The Midwest Carbon Sequestration Partnership (MRCSP) has been established to assess the technical potential, economic viability, and public acceptability of carbon sequestration within its region. It is one of seven regional partnerships established by the DOE across the U.S. as part of an overall DOE strategy to develop robust, cost-effective options for mitigating carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions that contribute to climate change.


The Great Plains Institute is a non-partisan, non-profit corporation based in Minneapolis, serving the Midwest: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Manitoba, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.GPI brings together key public and private leaders from across the northern plains to accelerate the transition to a renewable and low-carbon energy system by mid-century.


The Southern States Energy Board (SSEB) is a non-profit organization. Its mission is to enhance economic development and the quality of life in the South through innovations in energy and environmental policies, programs and technologies.


The MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) , established in September 2006, is an Institute-wide initiative designed to help transform the global energy system to meet the needs of the future and to help build a bridge to that future by improving today's energy systems.


The ICO2N is the Integrated CO2 Network, a network of Canadian companies committed to the deploying CCS in Canada to meet climate change objectives.


The Environmental NGO Network on Carbon Capture and Sequestration (ENGO Network on CCS) , is an international network of environmental NGOs working together to pursue international and domestic policies, regulations, and incentives to enable CCS to deliver on emission reductions safely and effectively.
