Criteria for Including Activities Related to the U.S. Climate Change Technology Program

Research, development, demonstration, and deployment activities37 classified as being climate change work or associated with the goals and objectives of the Climate Change Technology Program (CCTP) must be activities that are relevant to providing opportunities for:

  • Current and future reductions in or avoidances of emissions of GHGs
  • GHG capture and/or long-term storage, including biological uptake and storage
  • Conversion of GHGs to beneficial use in ways that avoid emissions to the atmosphere
  • Monitoring and/or measurement of GHG emissions, inventories, and fluxes in a variety of settings
  • Technologies that improve or displace other GHG emitting technologies, such that the result would be reduced GHG emissions compared to technologies they displace
  • Technologies that could enable or facilitate the development, deployment, and use of other GHG-emissions reduction technologies
  • Technologies that alter, substitute for, or otherwise replace processes, materials, and/or feedstocks, resulting in lower net emission of GHGs
  • Technologies that mitigate the effects of climate change, enhance adaptation or resilience to climate change impacts, or potentially counterbalance the likelihood of human-induced climate change
  • Basic research activities undertaken explicitly to address a technical barrier to progress of one of the above climate change technologies
  • GHG emission reductions resulting from clear improvements in management practices or purchasing decisions

Specific examples of climate change technology activities include, but are not limited to

  • Electricity production technologies and associated fuel cycles with significantly reduced, little, or no net GHG emissions
  • High-quality fuels or other high-energy density and transportable carriers of energy with significantly reduced, little, or no net GHG emissions
  • Feedstocks, resources or material inputs to economic activities, which may be produced through processes or complete resource cycles with significantly reduced, little or no net GHG emissions
  • Improved processes and infrastructure for using GHG-free fuels, power, materials, and feedstocks
  • CO2 capture, permanent storage (sometimes referred to as sequestration), and biological uptake
  • Technologies that reduce, control or eliminate emissions of non-CO2 GHGs
  • Advances in sciences of remote sensing and other monitoring, measurement and verification technologies, including data systems and inference methods
  • Technologies that substantially reduce GHG-intensity
  • Voluntary government/industry programs designed to directly reduce GHG emissions
  • Programs that result in energy efficiency improvements through grants or direct technical assistance.
