Our publications, reports and research library hosts over 500 specialist reports and research papers on all topics associated with CCS.
The Institute has developed an analytical framework to derive a composite indicator that compares levels of national policy support to drive domestic action on CCS.
This 2015 update of the CCS Policy Indicator includes some important developments that have occurred in several major countries since it was last published in 2013.
The report presents findings associated with the possible inclusion of carbon dioxide capture and geological storage (CCS) within the Kyoto Protocol’s clean development mechanism (CDM), and the potential repercussions this could have on the global regulated carbon market.
In order to achieve this, it examines the effects of creating additional certified emission reduction (CER) 'offsets' from CCS activities to the pool available for compliance by Annex B Parties to the Kyoto Protocol. The study also considers implications for 2020 in order to gauge potential market effects of CCS in any future, yet-to-be-agreed, post-2012 international carbon trading mechanism.
