Additionally, the FE R&D program will be complemented by $3.4 billion from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. These funds will be used to advance research, development and deployment of carbon capture and storage technologies.
The Office of Fossil Energy’s programs support the President’s top initiatives for climate change mitigation, advanced coal research, and energy security. Specifically, the Office of Fossil Energy will:
Partner with industry and others to advance efficient and near-zero emissions fossil energy technologies for widespread deployment and commercialization;
Manage and carry out research that reduces market barriers to the reliable, efficient, and environmentally sound use of fossil fuels for power generation and conversion to other fuels, including hydrogen; and
Maintain the strength and viability of U.S. petroleum reserves – in particular, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve – to provide energy security in the event of a severe supply disruption.
