Venue: Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation | City: Edinburgh, United Kingdom
This event aimed to facilitate a discussion around Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), exploring its potential role within the Scottish economy alongside renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.
The deployment of CCS is often considered by experts as critical to meeting climate change targets worldwide over the coming decades. For heavy industry, it is considered a viable technology that can deliver significant reductions in carbon emissions.
With world-leading decarbonisation targets, legacy oil and gas pipeline infrastructure and an extensive CO2 storage asset deep below the North Sea, Scotland is uniquely placed to both deliver and benefit from a CCS industry.
The event's speakers are actively engaged in UK-based projects, which aim to harness the benefits of CCS and support economic competitiveness. A short period of discussion allowed delegates to further explore CCS within the wider context of Scotland’s low-carbon ambitions.
The event was co-hosted by Scotland’s 2020 Climate Group and Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage
