SCCS Director, Professor Stuart Haszeldine, today joined a panel of experts who were giving evidence to the Scottish Parliament's enquiry into the security of energy supply.
The enquiry covered a number of areas, including the role of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in tackling emissions as part of future energy scenarios, which was the subject of keen interest among MSPs on the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee.
During the enquiry, Prof Haszeldine responded to a variety of questions on issues such as ownership of CCS infrastructure and storage sites, the amount of carbon that CCS could feasibly tackle at fossil fuel power plants, the potential role of the recently created Oil and Gas Authority in supervising CCS in the UK and the timely application of learnings from the UK CCS demonstration programme for future projects.
