Environmental campaigners have branded carbon capture and storage (CCS) a “dangerous distraction” from the urgent need to decarbonise the energy sector.
It’s hoped the award of more than a million pounds to a Scottish decarbonisation group could help to “realise the ambition” of energy transition initiatives in the north-east.

Green hydrogen projects, including a number in the north-east, could generate £320 billion for the UK economy and sustain up to 120,000 jobs by 2050, according to a new study.
Bosses behind a north-east, emissions-busting project said carbon capture represented a “tremendous opportunity” for oil and gas skills to be transferred over to clean-energy.
The UK's "reliance" on other countries to help develop its offshore wind sector is a lesson for its burgeoning CCS industry, according to a boss at Spirit Energy.
Energy services firm Petrofac has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Storegga Geotechnologies in an effort to drive new clean energy developments.
A major Aberdeenshire project could be in line for a share of a multi-million-pound UK Government scheme to fuel low-carbon jobs.
An Aberdeenshire project has been awarded £2.7million to test and develop a cost-effective way or converting North Sea gas to a clean fuel.
