This webinar will present the findings of a study to assess the economic viability of natural gas combined-cycle power plants with CO2 capture and storage (NGCC-CCS) in climate change mitigation strategies, emphasising the use of renewable energy and natural gas for electric power generation. In this study, the cost of NGCC-CCS was compared on a level playing field to those of intermittent renewable energy systems (IRES) and energy storage technologies as a means of reducing power sector greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) of NGCC-CCS was compared to that of offshore wind, photovoltaic systems, and concentrated solar power (CSP) together with pumped hydro storage (PHS), compressed air energy storage (CAES), and Li-ion, ZEBRA and Zn-Br battery storage systems. The cost of NGCC-CCS as a backup technology in conjunction with IRES also was assessed.
The Rotterdam Capture and Storage Demonstration Project (ROAD) recently completed a report for the Global CCS Institute identifying the opportunities for integrating carbon capture process with the main power generation process and for optimising the efficiency of the power plant and carbon capture unit.
It is our pleasure to invite you to the BASTOR 2 Project Members' webinar. This is an opportunity to learn more about the results of the geological assessment of the opportunities to store carbon dioxide in the Cambrian sandstone under the south eastern areas of the Baltic Sea.
Some 6,500 km of CO2 pipelines has been operating for years, primarily in the United States. More recently, a number of these pipelines have been used for CO2 re-use or carbon capture and storage (CCS) operations in Europe and the Americas. Valuable experience and lessons learnt are available from these projects relevant for all phases of CO2 pipeline projects:, from early identification to execution and operation.
The Global CCS Institute is pleased to have held the first Venezuela specific webinar on Wednesday 18 December from 9:30-10:30am (Venezuelan Standard Time). This webinar series will be presented in Spanish, and is part of the Global CCS Institute’s capacity development program in the Americas.
On 17 December 2013 a special Global CCS Institute webinar was held featuring Daniel Fernandez-Poulussen, from Spain’s Public Research Foundation – Ciuden. Daniel introduced us to the extensive program of public engagement and outreach activities that have been undertaken for the onshore CO2 storage project (the Hontomin Project) taking place in the village of Hontomin, North West Spain.
As carbon capture and storage (CCS) moves towards large-scale commercialisation, stakeholders along the CCS chain are required to address and resolve design and operability details, from generation to storage, at a commercial scale for the first time.
As in other sectors, process simulation and modelling are key technologies for performing design calculations and analysis operations. Indeed, there is little that is new in terms of individual CCS chain components; conventional power stations, amine based CO2 capture plants, pipelines and compressors are mostly well understood.
