Duke Energy has filed testimony with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission that outlines plans to conduct a $120 million study of permanent underground storage of CO2 emissions from a coal-gasification plant currently being built in Edwardsport, Indiana. Duke is seeking a federal grant that could help cover up to 50 percent of the project’s cost. Duke Energy Indiana president Jim Stanley said, “Indiana gets more than 90 percent of its electric power from coal, and our country has hundreds of years of reserves. The real-world testing of carbon capture and storage is critical to the continued use of an abundant and relatively inexpensive energy source.”
