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

28th September 2020

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.
