Founded in 2020, Carbon Infrastructure Partners is an investment management firm on a mission to solve the dual challenge of meeting global energy needs and rapidly reducing carbon emissions. We are a Calgary, Alberta and San Francisco Bay Area based firm focused on investments that measurably reduce emissions and target attractive risk-adjusted returns by leveraging incentives for Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS). Members of our team collectively have experience raising and investing $1.3 billion CAD for oil & gas private equity projects since 2003.
WE ARE CARBON INFRASTRUCTURE PARTNERS
WHY CARBON CAPTURE?
Our view is that the case for rapid and profound decarbonization has never been more obvious or more urgent. The consequences of unrestricted greenhouse gas emissions continue to manifest as the atmospheric concentration of CO2 exceeds 415 parts per million (ppm) and the atmospheric load of CO2 approaches 1 trillion tons1. Carbon emissions continue to rise, despite significant progress on efficiency and clean energy generation, especially in wind and solar.
The fundamental axiom of a successful energy transition and climate counterstrike: managing carbon emissions requires actually managing carbon emissions.
We are among those who believe that Carbon capture and storage (CCS) must play a central role in meeting climate change targets, delivering low carbon heat and power, decarbonizing industry and facilitating the net removal of CO2 from the atmosphere and that that the versatility of carbon capture and the vast and untapped carbon storage capacity of the geosphere allows CCS to immediately play a key role in eliminating and managing emissions today.
WHAT THE WORLD IS SAYING
“…CCUS is the only group of technologies that contributes both to reducing emissions in key sectors directly and to removing CO2 to balance emissions that cannot be avoided. This is a critical part of reaching ‘net’ zero targets”
“The role of sequestration is a critical piece of the puzzle in solving the climate change challenge and leading the world to net zero carbon.”
"We cannot achieve global climate targets on carbon neutrality without large-scale implementation of CCUS."
"Managing carbon emissions requires actually managing carbon emissions."
"With mounting pressure to deliver on climate ambition and the daunting prognosis elucidated in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 1.5°C Report, the need to deploy carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies has become increasingly more urgent."
"Carbon Capture can keep millions of tonnes of CO2 emitted from these sources out of the atmosphere, making it a critical tool in the global climate solution toolbox. The individual technologies that comprise carbon capture have been commercially available for many decades, but are only now being harnessed to address global warming."
"That’s why, along with promoting clean energy and efficiency and shifting away from fossil fuels, NRDC has long supported policies to advance a proven technology called Carbon Capture & Storage."
Carbon Infrastructure Partners is well positioned as an asset manager championing real asset investments that seek to measurably reduce emissions through Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage.
- Geologic storage of CO2 is a commercial solution for a variety of energy and industrial emitters
- High concentration emission sources co-located with saline formations are economic under 45Q tax incentive
- Hydrogen production with carbon capture and storage is a low carbon, scalable energy carrier solution, for heavy freight transportation and industrial needs
- California Low Carbon Fuel Standard provides a robust economic signal for Blue hydrogen
EOR CO2 STORAGE
- Opportunistic private capital to acquire certified pore space for CO2 storage and enhanced oil recovery in strategically located regions
- 45Q tax credit incentive for CO2 capture creates opportunities for EOR projects in the Mid Continent
NEGATIVE EMISSIONS TECHNOLOGIES (NETs)
- NETs remove carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere or enhance natural carbon sinks to reduce atmospheric CO2 from previous emissions
- NETs include Direct Air Capture (DAC) and Bio-Energy and Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)
