Carbon Capture Demonstration Projects Programs (CCDPP, Energy Act)

Federal Agency


Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED)


To demonstrate substantial improvements in the efficiency, effectiveness, cost, and environmental performance of carbon capture technologies for power, industrial, and other commercial applications.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Eligible applicants are broad and include: Technology Developers, Industry, Utilities, Universities, National Laboratories, Engineering and Construction firms, State and Local Governments, Tribal, Environmental Groups, and Community Based Organizations.

Decarbonization Considerations

Consider projects that have the highest potential for carbon reduction in the region or that can scale nationally. Maximize the carbon capture quantity and efficiency by leveraging existing public-private partnerships and federal resources.

Equity Considerations

Consider prioritizing projects that are located in economically and environmentally distressed communities, maximizing the long-term benefits for residents of the region. Partner with community-based organizations and engage local community during the process of program planning, design and implementation.
