CCS / Decarbonization Project Development, Finance & Investment - Presented by Infocast



The Best Gathering of The Entire Value Chain for Investing In, Contracting & Financing CCS and Decarbonization Projects

CCS and CCUS project development and scale-up are at the brink of exploding driven by the tax credits included in the Inflation Reduction Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and by expansion of 45Q, market demand, and technological advances. CCS and CUUS projects continue to heat up as up as new vehicles for large tax equity, institutional, and private equity investment as the energy transition continues. Opportunities abound to leverage these technologies across the energy sector.

However, developing and financing these projects involves sometimes novel complexities. Understanding the new and expanded federal and state policies and incentives, obtaining permits, making equipment and technical choices, negotiating contract issues between emitters and decarbonization developers, and structuring deals to meet the needs of investors, lenders and tax-equity: these must all be tackled to bring a decarbonization project into reality. Only the best informed will succeed in this highly competitive space.

Infocast’s CCS/Decarbonization Project Development, Finance & Investment Summit will bring together project developers, emitters, providers of tax equity, development capital and cash equity to explain the latest developments, showcase critical market information, and provide an “inside view” from the perspectives of all the players in these deals. Let the experts show you how to take maximum advantage of available federal and state programs and incentives and other potential revenue streams and get what you need to make projects actually happen. This is a unique opportunity to network in order to build up the burgeoning US market and strategize to tackle the challenges that lie ahead for this evolving industry. Review our program outline and reserve your place at this event today.

The only event to bring together investors, emitters and developers to provide a deep dive into their needs and perspectives on investing in, contracting and financing for CCS and decarbonization projects. Come here to learn what you’ll need to get actual projects built in this critical space:

  • Learn how your project can take maximum advantage of ALL available federal and state programs and incentives – including those in the IRA And IIJA
  • Get detailed business case information on the latest Direct Air Capture and emissions capture decarbonization projects

  • Understand the critical elements in structuring these projects to attract tax equity, development capital and cash equity financing
