Report led by researchers from University College London: "The role of CCS in meeting climate policy targets"

24th October 2017

The Global CCS Institute has commissioned an authoritative and independent report that examines policy issues in the deployment of CCS, in accordance with global commitments to limit temperature increases to below 2 and 1.5 degrees Celsius. It outlines comprehensively the arguments made for and against CCS deployment, examines the experience of CCS deployment to date in a range of countries, draws lessons from other analogous technologies, and explores findings from integrated energy systems modelling.

The report is intended to inform a wide variety of stakeholders on the relative importance of the full set of policy instruments available to promote CCS and emission reduction technologies more generally.

The report was led by authors Dr Nick Hughes and Professor Paul Ekins at the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources, as part of a consortium that drew in other world-leading expertise from the UCL Energy Institute, UCL Faculty of Laws, University of Edinburgh and the UK Energy Research Centre. The project team brought together extensive experience on CCS technology, legal and regulatory issues connected to CCS, low-carbon energy policy-making, energy systems analysis and the governance of energy technologies.
