The focus of this study is on the role that bioenergy carbon capture and storage (BECCS) technology can play in achieving long term ambitions to reduce emissions. This report describes the assumptions and methods used to determine the impact of adoption of BECCS in the power sector and for large applications entailing direct combustion. A number of scenarios were modelled with and without the availability of BECCS to determine the relative contribution of BECCS. The results of the modelling are discussed in this report.
This report describes an in-depth national study of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (also known as bio-CCS, BECCS or renewable-CCS), with a focus on Australia. The authors - The Climate Institute - seek to identify the implications for an economy to meet ambitious climate goals with and without bio-CCS.
This project was conducted with support from the Global CCS Institute.
Climate of the Nation 2013 benchmarks Australian attitudes to climate change, related policies and solutions. In mid-2013 the report found that two-thirds of Australians accept that climate change is real as well as a growing understanding that climate impacts are already occurring, no longer just threats for the future.
The report, from The Climate Institute, also finds that there is no foundation for claims that the 2013 Australian Federal election is a ‘referendum on the carbon tax’, and that a growing majority of Australians think that the country should be a leader in finding climate solutions - a number that is up for the first time since 2007, when The Climate Institute first started tracking public attitudes towards climate change.
