In support of a new initiative launched at the Ninth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM9), the Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Initiative, you are invited to join the United Kingdom (UK) for the webinar “Progressing CCUS in the UK and Accelerating CCUS Globally: The UK CCUS Action Plan and Outcomes from the Global CCUS Summit”.
Following the November 2018 release of the CCUS Action Plan, the UK is poised to play a leading role in supporting the development of CCUS—one of the most promising clean energy technologies of the future. Recognizing CCUS as having the ability to deliver tangible results in tackling some of the biggest challenges associated with decarbonizing the economy, contributing to industrial competitiveness, and generating new economic opportunities, the UK has outlined their vision to become a global leader in the CCUS space via the recently published Action Plan.
This vision was reinforced at the November 2018 International CCUS Summit in Edinburgh, UK, where global energy leaders convened to drive new momentum in CCUS technologies as a proven and critically-important climate solution. The Summit underscored the importance of a scaled-up investment in CCUS, in addition to clear policy direction, to achieve global climate and energy goals. This webinar will detail these recent developments and also discuss the future landscape for CCUS in the UK and around the world.
The webinar will be offered on Thursday, March 14th at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4). The session will last approximately one hour. The event will be hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The webinar presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
The speakers include:
➢ Will Lochhead | Head of CCUS Policy Team | Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), UK Government
➢ Jonathan Baker-Brian | Senior Policy Advisor, CCUS Policy Team | BEIS, UK Government
➢ Brian Allison | Assistant Head CCUS R&D, Innovation and International Engagement | BEIS, UK Government
