CCS power plants could be seen in the market if this is incentivized by regulation and/or if they become competitive with their unabated counterparts, if the additional investment and operational costs, caused in part by efficiency reductions, are compensated by sufficiently high carbon prices (or direct financial support)

The Council committed to cooperate further to address the need for fuel diversification in emerging economies and the importance of transitioning to competitive, safe and sustainable low carbon energy systems, notably through further development and deployment of renewable energies, energy efficiency, and deployment of carbon capture storage and utilisation.

All-Energy 2014, the UK’s largest renewable and sustainable technologies event, returns to the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from 21-22 May, and this year features two enlightening sessions on CCS.

The European Commission’s new Director-General for Energy, Dominique Ristori spoke about the importance of continued support for CCS at a debate about “Putting innovation at the heart of 2030 climate and energy policies” organised by Energy Post in partnership with Shell, on the 17 March.
