One of the key issues facing the roll out of carbon capture and storage (CCS) will be the availability of commercial finance to support the significant capital investment needs of the industry. Whilst a small number of projects have begun early discussions with debt finance providers, the appetite for, and understanding of, CCS in the financial sector has not been widely tested to date. With this in mind, the Global CCS Institute recently commissioned Societie Generale to take the pulse of the international finance community to determine the awareness, understanding and appetite for financing CCS projects with debt.
In this webinar, Allan Baker, Global Head of Power Advisory & Project Finance at Societe Generale, presented the findings of this exercise and discuss key issues for financial institutions in the CCS sector, potentially available sources of finance for projects and how to unlock this liquidity.
