Carbon capture - what does the future hold?

UK Capture


In November 2015, the Government announced that, following the Chancellor's Autumn Statement, the £1 billion funding which had been the ring-fenced capital budget for the UK Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Competition was no longer available. This decision means that CCS research in the UK, which was poised to take a significant step cannot now proceed. The government said it would engage closely with the the Shell Peterhead project and the Capture Power White Rose project, who were the preferred bidders, on the implications of this decision for them. At a subsequent meeting with DECC they were asked to wait six months at which point there might be more news.
