CCSA comments on the Energy Bill – House of Lords vote on Ofgem’s duties to have regard to meeting net zero

In response to yesterday’s vote in the House of Lords on the Energy Bill, Ruth Herbert, Chief Executive at the CCSA commented:

“We are delighted to see that the House of Lords voted in favour of updating Ofgem’s duties to include a specific requirement to have regard to meeting the UK’s net zero target. The CCUS industry has been pushing for this amendment alongside other low-carbon energy trade associations – working together to ensure the regulator is empowered to put net zero at the heart of their decisions.

This amendment will be particularly critical for CCUS, to enable the roll-out and expansion of significant CO2 infrastructure this decade – to ensure we can meet the Government’s ambition of capturing and storing 20-30 million tonnes of CO2 per year by 2030 which will be essential if we are to remain on the path to Net Zero.”

CCSA and Endrava AS combine forces to accelerate CCUS

Posted on: April 12th, 2023 by ccsaEditor

The Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA) and Endrava AS are combining forces to accelerate the deployment of decarbonisation solutions, particularly within the field of Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS).

Endrava will provide access to CaptureMap, a powerful map-based platform that identifies large CO2 emitters, to the CCSA for its internal use. Additionally, current and new CCSA members will receive subscription discounts to CaptureMap, along with complimentary data analysis sessions.

CaptureMap was created five years ago as part of a project for Offshore Norge. Realising the utility of the tool and for the purpose of accelerating the pace of CCUS project development, Offshore Norge generously allowed Endrava to commercialise CaptureMap. The first user on board was the Northern Lights project (a JV between Equinor, Shell and TotalEnergies), who effectively leveraged CaptureMap to build a list of potential point source CO2 emitters in Europe for their transport and storage value chain.

Eric Rambech, co-founder of Endrava, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, saying, “Major energy producers and equipment manufacturers are already using CaptureMap. The collaboration with the CCSA is an important milestone in making CaptureMap known and available to even more actors in the value chain, creating a common platform of understanding for finding the best point source emitters for CCUS. We’ve been impressed with the skill, drive and success of the CCSA over time now, and are therefore thrilled to launch this collaboration together with them.”

Ruth Herbert, CEO of the CCSA commented on the exciting new collaboration, saying “CaptureMap is a fantastic tool that we believe could help support many of our members to identify and realise their customer base for future CO2 infrastructure, thus enabling increased investment in further storage sites. Given the long lead-in times, early investment in CO2 transport and storage assets will be vital to meeting demand for CCUS, which we expect to accelerate from the late 2020s onwards.”
