A north-east MSP has called for assurances that UK carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects won’t hit the buffers following the Cabinet reshuffle.
Carbon capture and storage
Scotland’s energy minister has said carbon capture and storage (CCS) is not a “wishlist” item and that government and industry must deliver the technology.
A pioneering north-east project for tackling carbon emissions received a huge funding boost today.
Oil and gas doyen Sir Ian Wood said yesterday a “major energy transition park” could help Aberdeen capitalise on the switch to a low carbon economy.
More work must be done to develop Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) so that the North Sea sector can make the transition to a low carbon economy, energy experts have said.
I read with interest Luke Warren’s (CEO Carbon Capture and Storage Association) article criticising my previous Energy Voice piece where it was stated ‘but Tom misses the essential point about the very nature of CCUS technology when he says we should “bypass CCUS” in order to decarbonise our economy and stimulate investment in hydrogen’.
Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham has urged the UK Government to fund carbon capture and storage facilities as she called for a “shared national endeavour” to tackle climate change.
Many of the UK's heavy industries could close unless the Government kick-starts carbon capture technology, MPs are warning.
Norway has handed Equinor and partners Shell and Total a permit for a carbon capture and storage (CCS) project called Northern Lights.
We have 12 years to clean up our carbon act on a global scale or face catastrophic climate change: that was the stark warning from the IPCC in October.
For Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) to make a meaningful contribution towards decarbonising our energy system, it needs to start with a bang, not a whimper.
The firms behind a study to determine if a carbon capture and storage facility could be build in the north-east have confirmed work is halfway finished.
Newly-appointed Energy Minister, Claire Perry, says the UK Government wants to look at Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) “really seriously”, just over two years after Westminster axed a £1billion grant to develop the technology.
Scottish scientists will play a key role in an initiative that just won £7.6million worth of funding to research carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.
UK Energy Minister Jesse Norman has argued Britain should be an “early bird” rather than a pioneer in the development of carbon capture and storage.
While the energy in fossil fuels is valuable for society, burning them has well documented environmental consequences – global warming, smog and the effects of nitrous and sulphur oxides. Many think the time has come to stop burning them almost entirely. This led to the Guardian launching a campaign a couple of years ago to “keep it in the ground”, which attracted much support.
Researchers have urged the Scottish Government to adopt a “twin-track” approach to carbon capture and storage (CCS) to help achieve emissions targets.
Aberdeen South MP Callum McCaig is urging Philip Hammond to include targets for carbon capture and storage development in today’s Autumn Statement.
MPs are today calling on the UK Government to produce a new strategy for carbon capture and storage (CCS) after the last-minute axeing of £1billion of funding last year.
MPs on the soon-to-be-disbanded energy and climate change committee have urged their successors to keep making the case for carbon capture and storage.
Norway is poised to spend more than NOK1billion on building its carbon capture and storage portfolio, according to the Norwegian government.
A six point plan has been unveiled for delivering Carbon Capture and Storage in the UK.
The UK's Government's axing of support for major carbon capture and storage projects was been seen as a setback for the CCS sector, but it has also served to highlight the disparity between Britain and Norway, where the technology is being moving ahead.
A Scottish research partnership said yesterday it had taken the biggest cut of a £4million fund created to help lower emissions in the UK. Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS) won a £2.8million share of the money on offer from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). SCCS, a tie-up between Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt and Strathclyde universities and the British Geological Survey, will put the money towards three projects aimed at developing cost-effective carbon capture technologies.
The chief executive of the new oil and gas regulator has said it stands “fully ready” to support the carbon capture and storage (CCS) sector in the future.
