Energy Institute Young Professionals Network event "Can CCS deliver on its negative emissions promise?"

7th May 2020

EI LIVE | Evening Speaker Q&A Webinar – Can CCS deliver on its negative emissions promise?


CCS is widely considered to be essential to meet net-zero emissions goals and address the climate emergency. However, progress is currently slow, with the UK hesitating over the first CCS projects and considerable uncertainty globally. This webinar event, hosted by the EI Young Professionals Network London Branch, will explore the role of CCS in delivering net-zero and discuss some of the critical questions around its deployment:

  • What role can CCS have in our future energy system, from industrial decarbonisation to generation of clean power and hydrogen?
  • Will negative emissions, e.g. through bioenergy with CCS, play a significant role?
  • What might the first CCS projects look like in the UK and how will we get there?
  • What role will oil and gas companies play in developing the required infrastructure?
  • What does all of this mean for the future of CCS, and for the careers of today’s young energy professionals?

The event will follow a presentation and Q&A format. A panel of three speakers, from diverse backgrounds, will present their views and answer audience questions. The presentation and Q&A discussion will last approximately one hour. Agenda:

  • Introduction: Chris Gent, Policy Manager – Carbon Capture and Storage Association
  • Role of the oil and gas sector in delivering CCS for net-zero: Sue-Ern Tan, Group Carbon Relations Manager – Royal Dutch Shell
  • Role of bioenergy with CCS in delivering negative emissions: Rebecca Heaton, Head of Climate Change – Drax Power
  • What might the first UK CCS projects look like: Emrah Durusut, CCS & Industry Team Leader – Element Energy
  • Q&A
