CO2 Capture More Critical Than Renewables
Carin Hall, Energy Digital
In an effort to curb climate change, renewable energy development and energy efficiency retrofits are only half of the equation in reducing the world's dependency on oil, coal and natural gas. While the burning of fossil fuels will remain a central component of the global energy matrix for at least another hundred years, developing technologies to capture some of the pollution in that space will be just as critical as developing alternatives to replace them in the future.
