Second, in February 2008 three major investment banks— Citi, JPMorgan Chase, and Morgan Stanley—announced new environmental guidelines. 60 Through these guidelines the banks will encourage clients to pursue cost effective energy efﬁciency, renewable energy, and other low carbon alternatives to conventional generation. The banks also commit to analyzing the ﬁnancial risk posed by the prospect of domestic climate policy. While the signiﬁcance of the Carbon Principles should not be over-interpreted – they are essentially guidelines that do not in any way constitute industry standards – they are nevertheless a harbinger of things to come.
Therefore, any attempt to make coal-powered electricity generation more climate friendly through consideration of “clean” technologies such as CCS has signiﬁcant value. However, the economic challenge of constructing a signiﬁcant carbon capture and sequestration industry in a timeframe to slow global climate change currently overwhelms its promise: w First, CCS will always be a cost-plus exercise where signiﬁcant political will is required. CCS deployment will be a function of how policy impacts the power producers’ cash ﬂows and in turn how this impacts their least cost compliance strategies.
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), often referred to as Superfund, established a tax to ﬁnance a fund that addressed liabilities arising from clean up of hazardous waste sites. Speciﬁcally, it provided for a cap on clean up costs where contamination costs are greater than estimated. One of the strengths of this approach is its ﬂexibility and the fact that it allows for tailored risk management products. A federal insurance program to indemnify project developers and operators may be appropriate to address long-lived liabilities occurring during the post-injection phase of CO2 sequestration.
