As the UK rises in the RECAI rankings, could its 10-point green plan catapult it to be a leader in the globe’s green recovery?
As light begins to appear at the end of the tunnel in the battle against the Coronavirus pandemic, it is now a time for governments worldwide to think deeply about a sustainable, green recovery plan. In the UK, a sign of intent to seize this enormous opportunity to build back better has been given with the announcement of a £12b plan for a ‘green industrial revolution’. The pledge comes with the UK already moving in the right direction jumping to 5th spot in EY’s latest Renewable Energy Country Attractive Index.

Nicola Sturgeon’s key economic adviser has said the North Sea sector must move into carbon capture technology to overcome the low oil price and recover from Covid-19 economic damage.
The coronavirus pandemic has triggered the “largest drop in global energy investment in history”, the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said, launching its World Energy Investment 2020 report.
A partnership group of Equinor, Shell and Total has announced the completion of a carbon capture (CO2) storage suitability drilling campaign in the Norwegian North Sea.
A group of oil and gas giants will today announce plans to accelerate a huge carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) project to decarbonise an industrial area of Teesside.
A company which was backed by the British Government has raised 16 million US dollars (£12 million) from investors including US oil major Chevron in a bid to spread its technology to capture carbon from industrial plants.

I was recently reminded of a new year’s resolution that I made some years ago - one which I’m successfully keeping to this day. Back then, I committed to making the transition towards a greener, more sustainable personal lifestyle. But here’s the clever bit: I figured it would also be OK to carry on pretty much as before with all my current behaviours. So, no really big changes required and certainly no tough decisions to make. Now, maybe it’s just me, but expecting the oil industry to get right behind the energy transition whilst sticking with MER does feel kind of similar.
Oil and gas companies have provided “few signs” that they are willing to devote enough cash to tackling climate change, a new report said.
Equinor has unveiled new targets to reduce emissions from its operated offshore fields and onshore plants in Norway by 40% by 2030, 70% by 2040 and to near zero by 2050.

Scientists from Edinburgh University have received funding for a £1.4 million research project to investigate the storage of hydrogen in the subsurface.
Offshore Europe 2019 has precipitated a number of reports on the importance of Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) to achieving the UK’s net zero target. Indeed some commentators state that CCUS is essential; it is not an option.
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) seems to be everywhere at moment – in just the last week, two major reports have come out calling on governments in the UK to act on its delivery. Over the last year, report after report has emphasised the necessity of CCS in tackling climate change, and the urgency of deploying it in industrial clusters around the UK.
