Tenaska’s Tri-State CCS Hub Selected For Federal Funding

November 15, 2023

The Tri-State CCS Hub – a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project planned for the intersection of Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania – has been selected as a potential recipient of federal funding.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management announced Tuesday that the Tri-State CCS Hub was selected to negotiate funding of up to $69 million to support the geologic characterization and permitting efforts to develop the storage site. The DOE funding, if awarded, would bring together developer Tenaska and Southern States Energy Board, along with grant participants Ohio State University, West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey and West Virginia University.

As envisioned, the Tri-State CCS Hub would help manufacturers, industrial producers and power generating facilities meet increasing environmental requirements and climate mandates in a cost-effective, responsible manner. This not only allows these businesses to remain stable employers and taxpayers in the region but also paves the way for new energy careers. At the same time, CCS projects like this bring economic benefits to the community.

We are committed to being a good business neighbor in the region, and we appreciate the tremendous support that has been expressed for the Tri-State project. In particular, the project team would like to thank the many federal, state and local officials, business leaders, educational institutions and others who provided letters of support as part of our application.

We are encouraged by this DOE selection announcement, and we promise to keep you updated on our progress as the Tri-State CCS Hub advances. You can also find updates on our website, https://tristateccs.com/.
