As we reach the end of 2016 – a year that has witnessed a global commitment to climate action – the widescale delivery of carbon capture and storage becomes ever more pressing. At SCCS, as we get ready for 2017, we can look back on a year of research milestones, international partnerships, events and publications. Chart this progress on our news feed and revisit our events here. Thank you for your continued interest in our work. We wish you all the best for the festive season and look forward to working with you again in the New Year.
Scotland's Energy Strategy

Early next year, the Scottish Government is expected to issue its draft Energy Strategy for public consultation.

Events in 2017
The new year will bring another busy calendar of events. Keep an eye on our events feed for more information. In the meantime, you may be interested in a call for presentations for a geological CO2 storage session at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna in April 2017. More details here
