Global storage readiness assessment: an approach to assessing national readiness for wide-scale deployment of CO2 geological storage projects
29th May 2015
Topic(s): Carbon capture use and storage (CCUS), CO2 storage, Policy law and regulation
Lead Author Christopher P Consoli presents this methodology that assesses any given nation’s readiness for large-scale carbon dioxide (CO2) geological storage projects, as part of the wide-scale deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects. The Global CCS Institute’s assessment method enables a consistent and repeatable framework using a weighted set of criteria for transparency and accountability that can be updated as necessary to revise assessments and to include new nations.
This storage assessment complements the CCS Policy Indicator (CCS-PI) previously published by the Global CCS Institute in 2013 to compare levels of national policy support for CCS. Together, these two assessments work to highlight the global progression of CCS. This assessment is a living document designed to reflect the evolution of CCS and will be updated regularly.
