CCS in the Circular Carbon Economy: Policy and Regulatory Recommendations
CCS in the Circular Carbon Economy: Policy and Regulatory Recommendations

23rd July 2021

Topic(s): ccs, CCS Finance, CCS Investment, Policy

CCS is one of many climate mitigating technologies that is mature, commercially available, and absolutely necessary to achieve global net-zero ambitions and a stable climate. The total installed CCS capacity must increase 100-fold by 2050 to limit global warming to below 2° Celsius.

This report summarises policy and legal factors that have a material impact on the investability of CCS projects and makes recommendations on how governments may facilitate greater private sector investment in CCS.

The report examines and covers:

  • Financing CCS
  • The development of CCS-specific legal and regulatory frameworks
  • Recommendations addressing policy, finance and regulatory matters

Unlocking Private Finance to Support CCS Investments
Unlocking Private Finance to Support CCS Investments

28th June 2021

Topic(s): CCS Finance, CCS policy, Thought Leadership

One model aligned with the goals of the Paris Agreement, the International Energy Agency's Sustainable Development Scenario (IEA-SDS) requires 15% of the world’s emissions reductions to be achieved using CCS. The need for CCS in the IEA-SDS translates to a 100-fold increase in CCS capacity by 2050, for which this thought leadership report estimates the total capital requirement to be between US$655 bn and US$1,280 bn.

The report discusses the role of governments in creating an enabling investment environment for CCS and makes several recommendations for how to unlock private finance for projects.

The report examines:

  • The potential for project finance to greatly accelerate investment in CCS capacity
  • The application of green bonds to CCS projects in hard-to-abate sectors such as cement, fertilisers and chemicals
  • The potential for climate finance to support CCS deployment in developing countries

De-risking of CCS: A Primer for Investors and Businesses in the United States
De-risking of CCS: A Primer for Investors and Businesses in the United States

28th September 2020

Organisation(s): Global CCS Institute

Topic(s): CCS Finance, Risk, United States

Over the past year, the outlook for CCS has been positive, particularly in the United States (US). Thanks to broad bipartisan support at both the federal and state level, CCS in the US has seen growth exceeding that of any other nation.

Additionally, the Institute has seen an increase in new stakeholders looking to engage and explore the role of CCS in their emissions reduction strategies. These new stakeholders include sustainable investors who believe CCS projects can deliver strong returns while achieving environmental goals and mitigating climate change risk.

These new market entrants, however, often share a common concern; the need to de-risk CCS for investment.

This briefing will serve to summarise ongoing work by the Institute to communicate and educate stakeholders on the potential risk characteristics of CCS and to discuss these in the context of de-risking CCS investments and addressing challenges from a US perspective.
