A war of words has erupted over progress on plans to develop carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the UK.
Fears have been raised of “another false dawn” for north-east jobs on carbon capture and storage (CCS) as the government risks falling behind on delivery plans.
A new UK Government-backed carbon capture advisory group will include representatives from BP and Shell.
A pair of north east explorers have said experiencing first-hand the effects of climate change has led to their backing of a ground-breaking clean energy scheme.
Peterhead Port has been named as the ideal UK-wide hub to facilitate a carbon capture and storage (CCS) boom in the north of Scotland, a new study has revealed.
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. The following month, the UK Government reaffirmed its support for carbon capture and storage (CCS) – a tested technology that will deliver massive reductions in carbon emissions – and the Acorn CCS Project in north east Scotland secured a licence to select a suitable North Sea CO2 storage site.
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.
Anyone in the UK energy industry who didn’t clock the dramatic weather headlines of November 26 must have had their head in the sand.
A “major milestone” has been reached in the development of a pioneering clean energy project at the St Fergus gas terminal in Aberdeenshire.
The UK Government will set out long-awaited plans to roll out carbon capture and storage technology later this month.
The UK Government has been condemned for a lack of action to support a major clean energy project near Peterhead.
Jobs in energy-intensive industries like the oil and gas sector will disappear from the UK unless technologies such as carbon capture and storage are taken forward, a leading expert has warned.
A prominent Labour MP has accused the UK Government of marching carbon capture and storage backers “up to the top of the hill” only to march them “back down again” in the past.
Shell filed a draft decommissioning plan for the Goldeneye field with the UK Government today.
The UK Government will be warned today to take affirmative action to take advantage of the “multi-billion pound” carbon capture and storage (CCS) industry.
A north-east project could be the “stepping point” to begin large-scale use of technology to reduce carbon emissions in the UK, according to its manager.
UK government taskforce earmarks North East for carbon capture – three years after pulling £1billion funding
A UK Government taskforce has highlighted Peterhead as a key region to deploy Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technology, less than three years after Westminster cut a £1billion fund to develop it.
An Aberdeen company has reached the finals of an international competition to develop breakthrough carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies.
Three of the world’s biggest oil companies called on Norway to help maintain funding for carbon capture and storage technology that is stagnating amid concerns about whether it can ever be cost-effective.
Looking back on where we were a year ago, 2017 has been a heartening time for carbon capture and storage (CCS). Promising noises from the UK and Scottish Governments suggest an acceptance that the climate technology is necessary for meeting greenhouse gas targets, and an acknowledgement that government support is necessary if we are to develop a home-grown industry at least cost.
The controlled production of brine from rocks deep beneath the North Sea can greatly increase the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that can be injected for storage, new research claims.
Shadow energy minister Alan Whitehead has urged the UK Government to "get its act together" on carbon capture and storage (CCS).
We could be forgiven for thinking that the transition to sustainable energy has been achieved. In 2014, renewables generated 49.9% of Scotland’s electricity output, and 59.4% in 2015. On 7 August this year, renewable power provided more electricity than Scotland needed  and, in the third quarter, it produced 26% of the entire UK’s needs.
Norway is poised to spend more than NOK1billion on building its carbon capture and storage portfolio, according to the Norwegian government.
Oil major Shell said its Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project in Canada has reached a milestone with one million tonnes of CO2 ahead of schedule.
