7.1.11 State CO2 Emissions Standards

LPDD Recommendation: “States can impose restrictions on CO2 emissions to drive CCS. For example, states can adopt carbon emissions standards on new sources that require full CCS on new coal-fired units by the early 2020s, and partial and full CCS on new NGCC units by the mid-2020s and early 2030s, respectively.”

California GHG emissions standards

Effectively requires the use of CCS at new coal plants by capping emissions at NGCC levels, while exempting captured and sequestered carbon dioxide.
