UKCCSRC Programme Conference


UKCCSRC Programme Conference, 11 September 2018, Sheffield

Supporting CCUS Implementation Through Innovation


2018 has been an eventful year for CCS, with the Committee on Climate Change releasing two reports* strongly in favour of CCUS in the UK, the release of the Mission Innovation report "Accelerating Breakthrough Innovation in CCUS" and, not least, the formation of the Ministerial Council for CCUS and the Cost Challenge Taskforce. 

In light of the Cost Challenge Task Force (CCTF) Report, released on 19 July 2018, we are making a change to our usual autumn conference and instead we will review the CCTF report to assess where UKCCSRC members and associates can contribute to delivering its aspirations. We will have experts from the CCTF leading discussions, and the focus of the meeting will be the role of CCUS research and development following on from the report.
