This commentary argues the perspective that the U.S. Budget Bill passed by the House and Senate in mid-February 2018 will shape funding for energy technologies for the next decade. Alongside the extension of renewable tax credits and credits for energy efficiency, nuclear and fuel cells, the bill contains a provision that could provide the first significant stimulus to the global status of carbon capture for several years, according to the commentary.
