ETI says Fifth Carbon Budget should focus on CCS and bioenergy


 

The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has said that policy-makers should, in setting the Fifth Carbon Budget, seek to progress the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) and build a UK bioenergy sector. The call was made on Wednesday 16 March by the ETI’s David Clarke, as part of evidence given to the energy and climate change select committee inquiry into Setting the Fifth Carbon Budget. Clarke said that, whilst the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) had emphasised the need for CCS by 2050 in order to make the low-carbon transition cost-effective, the ETI’s research suggested that the technology would in fact be crucial by 2030.
