University of Strathclyde’s Centre for Energy Policy is holding a webinar on 29th April at 15.30-16.30 on ‘Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage – an evolving but challenging industry opportunity?’, as part of the Energy Conversations series.
The Energy Conversations are designed to be open forums for conversation on a topical energy and climate related theme. The event welcomes participants from a wide range of organisations, backgrounds and is open to members of the public, students and professionals.
The event will be chaired by the established journalist Alf Young who now writes for the Scottish edition of The Times.
Confirmed speakers include:
- David Holman, Business Development Executive, Pale Blue Dot Energy
- Dr Graeme Sweeney, Chairman, Zero Emissions Platform
- Professor Karen Turner, Director, Centre for Energy Policy
The online Energy Conversation will explore:
- Does CCUS create an evolving industry opportunity for both Scotland and the UK, and if so, what policy levers and wider actions will be needed to evolve and shift to a sustainable industrial landscape in Scotland and the UK?
- What are the greatest challenges for policymakers, industry and the wider stakeholder community?
- How can the competitiveness of UK industries, particularly those challenged to engage in carbon capture activity, be sustained on a CCUS pathway?
- What role can CCUS play in sustaining economic activity, contributing to a Just Transition and facilitating emission reduction?
