Japan Regional Members' Meeting
On 8 June 2012, the Global CCS Institute hosted its first Japan Regional Members’ Meeting. The one-day meeting focused on policy, technology, funding and public engagement issues facing CCS.
The opening addresses by the Director-General for Energy and Environmental Policy, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Japan, and Deputy Head of Mission to Japan, Australian Embassy, and keynote speeches by senior government officials of Japan and Australia shared a common understanding of the current global policy direction around CCS. Further presentations then discussed the current status and major issues of CCS projects worldwide, with case studies from the Texas Clean Energy Project and FutureGen 2.0 Project sharing experience and lessons learnt.
As a concluding part, a panel discussion suggested future images of CCS commercialisation.
On behalf of the Institute, I would like to thank all of our Japan Regional Members for their attendance and participation in making the event a success.
