Opportunities in CCS: Finding Government Funding and Business Partners
26th March 2021
2021 could well be The Year of CCS. The growth in CCS projects is being driven by many factors: an increasing realization of the dangers of climate change, an acknowledgement of the important role CCS plays in net-zero scenarios, decarbonization commitments from governments and business, and increased financial investment from both.
Increased CCS investment by governments, including funding of technology development, means increased opportunities for business. But how does a business access this funding? How does one know where to look, and how can a company position itself for success? And how do CO2 emitters and CCS technology and service providers find each other.
In this webinar, we looked at how financial support from federal governments is driving both CCS technology advancements and the financing of demonstration projects. In the US, the recently passed Energy Act of 2020 brings the potential of substantially more US Department of Energy funding opportunities for carbon capture. The government of the Netherlands has already begun the process of funding a new round of CCS projects in that country. This webinar provided insights into navigating transatlantic government funding opportunities and identifying the priorities for funding across various sectors.
