The Acorn carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in north-east Scotland, led by Pale Blue Dot Energy, recently secured £4.8 million from the UK Government’s CCUS Innovation fund to carry out detailed design and move the project closer to realisation by 2023.
Tomorrow, the All-Energy 2019 conference in Glasgow focuses on hydrogen as part of the UK's clean energy future. Ahead of this, we speak to two scientists from the SCCS partnership, who are engaged in different areas of cutting-edge hydrogen research. Join the CCS sessions this afternoon from 2pm to find out more about the technology and infrastructure that will help to decarbonise our heat, transport and industry sectors.
The UK Committee on Climate Change’s (CCC) report published today states that the UK can end its contribution to global warming “within 30 years” by setting an ambitious new target to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050. Scotland has even greater potential, it adds, and “can credibly adopt a more ambitious target of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045”.
A Europe-wide knowledge sharing network has received fresh funding from the European Commission to support and inspire major carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects in their efforts to deliver climate action.
