Regional CCS Cluster: North West of England

 

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

 

Meeting Date: 22 June 2016

 

The North West is potentially a major area for UK CCS deployment but currently there is limited information available on what that deployment might now look like. This workshop will bring stakeholders together to discuss possible elements in a future regional CCS cluster, with a time horizon for investment in the 2020s and beyond. 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 energyintensive assets, including power plants, industry and gas supplies.
