The role of CCS in meeting climate policy targets

Date: 
Monday, 23 October 2017 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Event type: 
Conference

The Global CCS Institute and the University College London (UCL) warmly invite you to attend a panel discussion on the role of carbon capture and storage in meeting climate policy targets.

As the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) draws near, this event will bring together leading experts from government, industry, academia and the media to discuss the deployment of CCS as a well-evidenced and versatile climate change mitigation technology. The discussion will also focus on the role of CCS in delivering “a new energy economy.”

This event is organised to mark the launch of UCL authored research which makes a positive case for the large-scale removal of CO2 emissions from a range of industrial processes, including electricity and heat generation, and the production of synthetic and hydrogen fuels. The Report also furthers the understanding on the contribution of CCS to a decarbonised energy future.

The discussion will be moderated by BBC Environmental Analyst Roger Harrabin. Speakers include:

  • Lord Deben, Chairman of the UK Committee on Climate Change
  • Professor Paul Ekins OBE, Professor of Resources and Environmental Policy and Director of UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources at University College London
  • David Hone, Chief Climate Change Adviser, Shell International
  • Dr Nick Hughes, Research Associate, UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources
  • Samantha McCulloch, Energy Analyst, International Energy Agency
  • Julio Friedmann, former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Fossil Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy and Senior Fellow at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
  • Brad Page, CEO, Global CCS Institute
