Bipartisan Policy Center's DAC DAY

Direct air capture (DAC) technologies are an essential component of the toolkit needed to reach net zero emissions but are yet to be demonstrated at the scale necessary for climate impact. To help address this, last year’s bipartisan infrastructure bill included $3.5 billion for the creation of four regional DAC Hubs over the next five years. These Hubs are a once-in-a-generation opportunity to deploy, demonstrate, and innovate DAC technologies through shared infrastructure and resources in regions throughout the United States. The Department of Energy has made clear their intent to maintain robust community engagement and maximize the effectiveness of the Hubs, but these efforts are just beginning to take shape.

On June 22, BPC is bringing together representatives from DOE and the broader DAC community for an in-person convening on DAC Hubs implementation. The programming will include keynote addresses from members of Congress and multiple panel discussions featuring DOE leadership, environmental NGOs, carbon management experts, labor, and the financial community. A cocktail reception on the rooftop of the museum will follow the formal agenda.
