11/7 U.S. DOE Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations Briefing: Project Cypress
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED) is catalyzing the equitable transition to a clean energy economy by investing in critical clean energy technologies in partnership with the private sector to accelerate deployment and market adoption.
On August 11, 2023, OCED announced two projects selected for award negotiations to establish Regional Direct Air Capture (DAC) Hubs, including Project Cypress in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana. DOE and each selectee will first negotiate a cooperative agreement, and any DOE funding would be provided only after negotiations are complete and DOE’s Contracting Officer executes the funding agreement.
OCED is co-hosting an in-person community briefing to share more details about the process and Project Cypress, and to hear feedback and questions from local stakeholders. This briefing will not be streamed or recorded.
Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2023.
Due to local feedback on the previously selected date, this community briefing has been postponed until November 7th.
Time: 5:30-7:30 PM (We are opening the doors 30 minutes earlier and the selectee is serving light refreshments to have more time to meet before the briefing. We will also have displays of the technologies used in the project.)
Place: West-Cal Events Center, 401 Arena Road Sulphur, LA 70665
