The Water, Energy and Carbon Sequestration Model (WECSsim): A Collaborative Systems Model
The Water, Energy and Carbon Sequestration Model (WECSsim) is an integrated assessment software tool developed to calculate the potential performance, location and cost characteristics with a national CO2 storage program utilizing geologic saline formations. Users can run power-plant specific scenarios to capture and store CO2 emissions while incorporating the additional value of extracting, treating and utilizing the saline waters.
Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships
DOE has created a network of seven Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships (RCSPs) to help develop the technology, infrastructure, and regulations to implement large-scale CO2 sequestration in different regions and geologic formations within the Nation.http://fossil.energy.gov/programs/sequestration/partnerships/index.html
