Joint Launch Event: Policy@Manchester, CBI Economics, CCSA & CCUS APPG


Joint Launch Event: Policy@Manchester, CBI Economics, CCSA & CCUS APPG

Posted on: March 15th, 2023 by ccsaEditor

‘Capturing the Carbon Opportunity’ is a joint report by Policy@Manchester, The University of Manchester’s policy engagement unit, and CBI Economics (Confederation of British Industry).

The report examines the role that carbon capture and storage can play in the UK’s goal to reach net zero by 2050 and aims to help accelerate the UK’s decarbonisation mission by exploring the potential of CCS.

Join the CCSA, CCUS APPG, Policy@Manchester and CBI Economics in attending a breakfast reception in the Terrace Pavilion, House of Commons on Tuesday 18th of April 08:00-11:00 to discuss the important findings of this report and network with key industry figures with common interests.

The breakfast reception will be held in the House of Commons on the 18th of April. The schedule will include:

Complimentary breakfast and tea and coffee will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!

Energy Storage Strategy Online Launch Event

Posted on: February 23rd, 2023 by ccsaEditor

Join SGN and our project partners DNV and Cadent on Wednesday 15th March 10:00-11:00 for an online event to showcase the progress and development of the Energy Storage Strategy.

The Energy Storage Strategy is an important initiative that will help identify a hydrogen and wider gaseous energy storage approach for the UK.

The Energy Storage Strategy project is a partnership between gas networks SGN and Cadent, and leading energy consultancy DNV, that has investigated the past, present and future role of gas storage in the UK energy landscape, including an assessment of the potential role of hydrogen storage. The study looked at the requirements for storage in an extreme weather scenario, modelling the decarbonisation direction through electrification or hydrogen for heat, and the next steps for supporting hydrogen storage to achieve binding climate change targets.

This launch event will provide an overview of the five key conclusions of the project, which are:

  1. To meet net zero the UK will require considerable energy storage.
  2. Hydrogen storage will be a major and essential part of this.
  3. Physical hydrogen storage is needed in the UK.
  4. Only geological hydrogen storage can deliver at the scale needed within the timescales for net zero.
  5. Geological hydrogen storage should be supported through a viable business model now, to ensure it can be available in the 2030s.

The project findings make clear that the development of hydrogen storage is a no-regrets option for energy system resilience, required regardless of heat decarbonisation pathway. Our launch event will further explain these findings and provide recommendations on the urgency and funding of storage implementation in the UK. We look forward to welcoming you there.

DNV’s Energy Transition: Outlook The future of the energy transition in Scotland

Posted on: February 22nd, 2023 by ccsaEditor

Which are the most promising technologies, how will the energy mix develop, and how do we turn talk into action to curb emissions and create new opportunities?

Get answers to these and many other questions at this seminar where we will be joined by experts from across the energy industry.

DNV’s UK Energy Transition Outlook, provides a detailed forecast of the demand and supply of energy towards 2050. It covers primary supply, infrastructure and associated CAPEX costs for the integrated UK system. Frank Ketelaars, Project Director for the UK ETO will present the key findings from this latest research.

Ronnie Quinn, Chief Executive, NECCUS will provide their view on how this forecast and UK ambitions compare with their assessment on likely developments in Scotland for offshore wind, hydrogen production and carbon capture and storage – both in terms of projects but also impact on the local job market.

The two presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, which will focus on the overall UK development trends, and what this means specifically for Scotland.

Speakers and panellists include:

When: 30 March 2023, 09:00-11:00

Where: P&J Live, East Burn Road, Aberdeen, AB21 9FX, Scotland

CCSA-ZEP Webinar: Building a European CO2 transport and storage infrastructure

Posted on: February 17th, 2023 by ccsaEditor

The direction is clear with ambitious 2030 targets and climate-neutrality by 2050. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon removal technologies are needed for Europe to reach these targets, enabling industrial decarbonisation, contributing to economic growth, sustaining current jobs and creating new ones. In recent months we have seen many positive announcements for cooperation on cross-border CO2 infrastructure, the basis for CCS in Europe and vital to achieve the climate objectives.

The webinar will take place on Zoom. If you are interested in joining this webinar, register here.

In this webinar, we will tackle questions such as:

With the following experts:

The event will be moderated by Per-Olof Granström, Secretary General, Zero Emissions Platform and EU Director at CCSA.

Note: This webinar is organised jointly with the Zero Emissions Platform.

This webinar will take place on Thursday 9th March, 14.00 – 15.30 GMT.

Testing of open and commercial solvents at Waste-to-Energy plants Webinar

Posted on: February 9th, 2023 by ccsaEditor

The ACT project NEWEST-CCUS aims to accelerate the development and deployment of CO2 capture technologies that are tailored for effective operation at Waste-to-Energy  (WtE) plants. In the project, amine solvents were tested at WtE plants and at plants under conditions relevant for WtE. One of the tested solvents was the well-known APBS CDRMax solvent, a proprietary solvent from NEWEST-CCUS project partner Carbon Clean. The webinar will address the execution of the campaigns, the results that were obtained and discuss the performance of the tested solvents.

Chair: Peter van Os, TNO
