Fourth year in and going strong
The Institute is pleased to publish the fourth edition of the Global Status of CCS report.
The report is our flagship publication and a great deal of effort goes in to it across the Institute, to ensure we present the best coverage of CCS progress and challenges, and the most up to date CCS project data in a concise and accessible publication.
Drawing on our internal expertise in this process is hugely valuable as we’re able to cover areas from policy, to technology and to public engagement.
You will see reading the Executive Summary that there are recommendations to decision makers made for the first time. At the Institute, we are passionate about CCS fulfilling the role that it needs to play in the portfolio of carbon mitigation and more often than in the past we will be making that point in our work.
We will be talking about the key messages and recommendations from this report in many forums over the coming months. Keep an eye out at events such as the Pittsburgh Coal Conference, National CCS Week in Australia and GHGT-11. If you prefer to hear more about the report while online then please join us for a webinar on 24 October where General Managers Holger Bietz and Barry Jones will be presenting our findings.
Over the next month I encourage you to keep coming back to Insights as we will have a series of posts from the authors of the report. As much of what goes into the report is part of broader, ongoing work, you can expect to see more releases that delve further than the Global Status of CCS report, including a full EOR report. Later, we will continue to update our CCS projects database and produce quarterly updates so you can have the most up-to-date data on large-scale integrated CCS projects.
All the chapters of the report are written in such a way to be as accessible as possible for all audiences including those who are not familiar with CCS. We are keen for those in the CCS industry to be able to use this as a tool when communicating about what is happening in CCS. If you use the report in this way please let us know, as we are always keen to hear how our work is being used.
If you have ideas about how we can improve, we are equally keen to hear from you.
I hope you enjoy the report – my role in managing its development does make me a little biased, but if CCS had a best seller list, then I think it deserves top spot.
