Abstract
In the face of increasing environmental problems, nations have designed and implemented a variety of methods to stabilize the climate. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology is intended to mitigate global warming by capturing, transporting, and sequestrating carbon dioxide (CO2) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; ensure energy security and reduce pollution, renewable energy technology has become an important choice for countries to ensure sustainable development, and they are both cited as important components of an energy development strategy. The role of renewable energy in CO2 in emissions reductions has great potential, and its impact in mitigating the greenhouse effect has strategic significance. By comparing CCS technology and renewable energy technologies, including costs and effects of carbon dioxide emissions reductions, this paper indicates the strategic position China should take to promote the development of both CCS technology and renewable energy technologies, and provides a reference to formulate a suitable CO2 emissions reductions strategy.
