Is CCS Dead – and if not how do we resuscitate it ?

Following the UK government’s decision to cancel its £1bn competition for carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology at the end of November the future of of CCS in the UK now looks very uncertain.

Energy Futures Lab in association with the British Institute of Energy Economics and the Energy Technologies Institute are hosting a panel discussion on the possible future of Carbon Capture and Storage in the UK. The event will include a panel of experts from industry and academia putting their view across and taking questions from the audience. After the event there will be a drinks reception to continue on the discussion around this pressing issue for the UK’s energy sector.
