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.
A six point plan has been unveiled for delivering Carbon Capture and Storage in the UK.
The Government's decision to axe UK's carbon capture plans showed a complete "lack of understanding" according to the director of Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS).
Cancelling a £1 billion competition to develop technology to capture and store carbon emissions could push up the costs of meeting climate targets, Whitehall’s spending watchdog has warned.
A scheme has been created to collect millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases and bury them under the North Sea off the coast of Rotterdam.
Energy Minister Andrea Leadsom has insisted the UK Government has not ruled out future investment in carbon capture and storage.
Scientists at a Scottish university have secured funding for a four-year project to study the ability of complex rock strata beneath the North Sea to trap carbon dioxide emissions securely.
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.
The ETI (Energy Technologies Institute) has launched a new project which will study the impact of removing brine from undersea stores which could be used to store carbon dioxide. The project will be carried out by Heriot-Watt University with £200,000 worth of funding.
Scottish and Canadian scientists have strengthened links on climate protection through Carbon Capture and Storage research
AGR has finalised a new two-year framework agreement to act as technical advisors to Norwegian state-owned Gassnova to help progress its national CCS development.
The creation of a Scottish CO2 (carbon dioxide) Hub can unlock UK and European potential for carbon capture and storage (CCS), according to a new report.
Energy Secretary Amber Rudd has been accused of contradicting David Cameron over the potential of technology to limit carbon dioxide emissions.
The UK’s £1billion CCS competition was suddenly chopped by the Government late last month without explanation.
Yesterday's news regarding the withdrawal of the £1 billion capital subsidy by a government who only six months ago were firmly committed to CCS as part of their election manifesto was a shock for many people across the energy industry.
The Peterhead community has been left reeling by the collapse of the CCS project that would have created hundreds of jobs.
A new national Carbon Capture and Storage company should be established to pick up the pieces of a shattered sector following the shock UK Government decision to withdraw a £1billion ring-fenced capital budget, according to an industry expert.
Carbon capture in the UK has been hung out to dry by the Cameron Government via some chancellor’s Autumn Statement fine print issued by the Department of Energy & Climate Change.
The UK Government is axing its £1 billion competition to develop “carbon capture and storage” technology on power stations, including Peterhead.
Oil major Shell has opened a landmark new CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) project in Canada. The new Quest facility at the Athabasca Oil Sands project is designed to capture, transport and store more than one million tonnes of carbon dioxide CO2 each year. The amount is equivalent to the emissions from an estimated 250,000 cars.
The £1billion Peterhead Carbon Capture and Storage project can help kick-start other CCS projects in the UK and make a significant contribution to reducing CO2, according to a leading industry expert.
Capture Power said it would retain its commitment to the delivery of the White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project after one of the consortium members pulled out. Drax said it was pulling out of the major scheme to develop technology to store emissions amid concerns over Government green policy changes. The company blamed the “drastically different financial and regulatory environment” which has seen the wholesale price of electricity drop and moves by the Government to rein back support for low carbon technology.
