Techno-economic and commercial opportunities for CCS-ready plants in Guangdong Province, China
1st March 2013
Guangdong is a pioneer in the reform of the Chinese economy and one of the most developed provinces in China (OECD, 2010). The provincial government of Guangdong plans gradually to establish a green energy system. In late 2010 the government set a target to reduce carbon intensity and a pilot carbon emission trading scheme has started from 2012. However, by March 2010, 16GW of ultra supercritical pulverised coal power plants (USCPC) with a unit size of 1000MW were already in the construction stage, while an even greater amount of large coal-fired power plants are pending for approval. The implementation of CCSR concepts in these plants to ease subsequent retrofitting to CO2 capture therefore becomes an urgent task in Guangdong. This study addresses the technical, economic, financial and stakeholder acceptability aspects of CCSR in Guangdong and investigates potential drivers and barriers to implement CCSR in Guangdong immediately.
This report describes the outcomes of a large group process workshop held in Edinburgh, Scotland on 24 September 2011. The one-day workshop was designed to investigate Scottish citizens’ perspectives on climate change and low-carbon energy technologies, with a particular focus on carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS). The report presents the large group process methodology and the results, both from questionnaire answers and discussions during the workshop. The key findings of the report reflect a mixed range of public opinions with regard to climate change, low-carbon energy and CCS.
The study, commissioned on behalf of the Global CCS Institute by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia, replicates a number of large group process workshops held in Australia by CSIRO.
