Today XPrize, the world's largest technology prize foundation, launched the Carbon XPrize. The prize, sponsored by NRG and COSIA, aims to: "...incentivize development of new and emerging CO2 conversion technologies, accelerating them from laboratory testing to demonstration under real world conditions. The prize will help identify the most promising pathways for CO2 conversion and prove they can be deployed at power plants and other industrial facilities. Ultimately, the impact of the prize will go far beyond the critical demonstration of innovative technologies, by inspiring transformation, enabling new markets, and empowering people to be a part of the solution to one of our world’s grande
Carbon Counts, alongside Chilean partners, has been asked by the World Bank’s Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR) to work with the Ministry of Energy in Chile to analyze interactions between the country’s planned Carbon Tax (Ley 20.780) and other existing and planned energy policies in the country.
