CCS has future in UK: DECC


 

The government has said it continues to see carbon capture and storage (CCS) as having a potential role in the long-term decarbonisation of the UK. In a letter to the energy and climate change select committee, published on Tuesday 12 January, DECC said the UK had implemented a robust “carbon capture ready” policy in Europe, which would facilitate the retrofit of CCS technology to CCGTs in the future.  The department denied that the decision to end the CCS commercialisation competition would have a detrimental impact on investment in the UK, saying that it remained an attractive place to invest with continued interest from debt and equity markets.
