Legal & Regulatory Indicator (CCS-LRI)
Legal & Regulatory Indicator (CCS-LRI)

16th October 2018

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

Law and regulation remains a critical element of a government’s policy response to support the development and deployment of CCS. Robust legal and regulatory frameworks provide certainty for businesses eager to engage in innovation, and the deployment of CCS.

The CCS-LRI offers a detailed examination and assessment of national legal and regulatory frameworks in 55 countries and examines a range of legal and regulatory factors likely to be critical for the regulation of the technology.

CCS Storage Indicator (CCS-SI)
CCS Storage Indicator (CCS-SI)

16th October 2018

Topic(s): Capacity development, Carbon capture, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

The availability of storage resources is the ultimate pre-requisite for CCS deployment. For global CCS deployment, each country needs to know where, and how much, CO2 can be stored. Each nation needs to characterise, explore and appraise a national portfolio of accessible, commercially-viable storage sites ready for CCS Facilities.

The CCS-SI tracks the development of storage resources for 80 countries. The 2018 scores confirm an overall improvement since the 2015 CCS-SI with twelve nations having mature, or near-mature, storage resources to enable wide-scale CCS.

CCS Policy Indicator (CCS-PI)
CCS Policy Indicator (CCS-PI)

16th October 2018

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Economics, Law and regulation, Policy, Project financing, Use and storage (CCUS)

Government policy, given effect through law and the allocation of public resources, is critical to achieving climate targets. It plays a material role in determining the return on investment for any climate mitigation technology making confidence in government policy a pre-requisite of investment.

The CCS-PI tracks the development of government policy to accelerate the deployment of CCS as an essential climate mitigation technology in over 100 countries.

The Carbon Capture and Storage Readiness Index 2018: Is the world ready for carbon capture and storage?
The Carbon Capture and Storage Readiness Index 2018: Is the world ready for carbon capture and storage?

16th October 2018

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Economics, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

Collectively, our three Indicator Reports 2018 form a further, criteria-based assessment known as the CCS Readiness Index, or CCS-RI. The 2018 CCS-RI examines over 50 countries using 70 discrete criteria and enables a comparative assessment of countries globally.

Clear from the 2018 assessment is that greater effort is required to deploy CCS at the scale necessary to meet climate change mitigation ambitions.

Effective enforcement of underground storage of carbon dioxide
Effective enforcement of underground storage of carbon dioxide

5th August 2016

Organisation(s): HWL Ebsworth Lawyers

Topic(s): CO2 storage, Law and regulation, Policy

The perception of an effective enforcement regime that ensures the secure and safe storage of CO2 in underground geologic formations will be crucial in increasing public and industry confidence in carbon capture and storage (CCS) as a viable low-carbon technology.

An effective enforcement regime for underground storage of CO2 has the following key features:

  • Comprehensive obligations that address the key risks of underground storage of CO2
  • Comprehensive monitoring and verification (M&V) requirements, including baseline monitoring, M&V obligations during the injection phase and M&V obligations post-injection
  • Enforcement mechanisms that are risk-based, layered and flexible, grounded in science and fact-based decision-making, and include the ability to deal with 'serious situations' (such as unintended releases and CO2 not behaving as predicted)
  • A clear allocation of roles and responsibilities for enforcement.

Closing the gap on climate: why CCS is a vital part of the solution
Closing the gap on climate: why CCS is a vital part of the solution

17th December 2015

Organisation(s): ENGO Network on CCS

Topic(s): Carbon capture, Domestic policy, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

The ENGO Network on CCS actively advocates for policies that will lead to the rapid uptake of low carbon technologies and climate change mitigation strategies.

Following the Network's 2012 paper, this work re-examines the role of CCS as a technology traditionally perceived as specific to coal-fired power generation, but whose value is now widely recognised as much broader: in the decarbonisation of power generation fuelled by natural gas, in the industrial sector, and in the increased focus on removing carbon from the atmosphere through bio-CCS.

Roadmap for carbon capture and storage demonstration and deployment in the People's Republic of China
Roadmap for carbon capture and storage demonstration and deployment in the People's Republic of China

2nd December 2015

Organisation(s): Asian Development Bank (ADB)

Topic(s): Carbon capture, CO2 capture, CO2 storage, CO2 utilisation, Domestic policy, Law and regulation, Policy, Use and storage (CCUS)

This Roadmap provides information on how China could achieve its climate goals through policy measures that encourage the deployment of CCS out to 2050. The work draws from economic modelling by experts at The Institute of Energy, Environment and Economy at Tsinghua University, and The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.
