Regional CCS Cluster: North East of England

 

Delivering Cost Effective CCS in the 2020s: an overview of possible North East developments

Meeting Date: 9 November 2016

 

The North East is potentially a major area for UK CCS deployment, with excellent CCS studies for Teesside but currently less information available on what other deployment might now look like. This workshop will bring stakeholders together to discuss possible elements for CCS deployment across the NE, and links with other regions, with a time horizon for investment in the 2020s and beyond to 2050.

CCS is a key technical response to control energy costs and ensure security of supply under future requirements for reducing, and eventually achieving net zero, global GHG emissions. Shaping current infrastructure planning to facilitate CCS is an effective way to future-proof major investments in energy-intensive assets, including power plants, industry and gas supplies.
