Institute updates

The Global CCS Institute hosted a 31 May parallel event to the Clean Energy Ministerial 7 (CEM7) in San Francisco to explore how carbon management technologies can bolster renewable energy adoption and help deliver on the climate goals set out in the Paris agreement.

Ron Munson, the Institute’s Principal Manager – Carbon Capture chaired a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) symposium at the 22-25 May TechConnect World Innovation and Conference Expo in National Harbor, MD. 

The two-day CCUS workshop held in Guangzhou, China on 5-6 May 2016 was concluded with a significant message that China may become the global leader in CCS development.

Like the international results of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Synthesis Report (2014) and the International Energy Agency’s World Energy Outlook Special Report on Energy and Climate Change (2015), the ETI’s work has consistently shown the huge financial benefits of a successful CCS sector within a low-carbon energy future. 

The Global CCS Institute joined many prominent Australian and international organisations in sponsoring the 3rd Australian Emissions Reduction Summit in Melbourne on 3 and 4 May.
