The UKCCSRC acts as a focal point for CCS in the UK, meaning it is in a position to have high-level strategic conversations with funders, regulators and industry on behalf of the community.
Members of the UKCCSRC Management Team regularly participate in Government and other committees, evidentiary enquiries and working groups. Most recently our management team have been active in the BEIS CCUS Cost Challenge Taskforce, CCUS Council and Mission Innovation.
We also recognise the importance of the general public in the road to CCS deployment. Our core research will work with key stakeholders (e.g. government, industry, NGOs and the public) to better understand the key issues and identify priorities in establishing CCS within the energy system, and to help build the necessary foundations to establish a social licence to operate CCS in the UK.
