UK Government’s Net Zero Strategy: Build Back Greener
From heating our homes to filling up our cars,
burning fossil fuels releases the greenhouses
gases that increase global temperatures. We are already seeing the effects here in the UK, with devastating floods in the West Midlands in January and torrential downpours submerging London Underground stations earlier this summer.
CCSA Economic Analysis of UK CCUS
The UK is in the early stages of developing a CCUS industry, with ambition to deploy four clusters and capture at least 10 million tonnes of CO2 annually by 2030. We explore the economic impacts of this deployment, review some lessons from the success of the offshore wind industry to highlight policy gaps, and estimate the ongoing funding levels that will be required to roll-out CCUS in the UK.
UK Government Policy Paper on Carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) supply chains: a roadmap to maximise the UK’s potential
This roadmap sets out how government and industry can work together to harness the power of a strong, industrialised UK CCUS supply chain, while ensuring that the CCUS sector as a whole remains investible, cost effective and focused on delivery.
