The Investment Case for CCS: Policy Drive and Case Studies

25th September 2023

Read the Institute's thought leadership report titled "The Investment Case for CCS: Policy Drive and Case Studies", which highlights available policy tools supporting carbon capture and storage (CCS) investment and provides key insights into what is necessary to accelerate capital flows.

Over the past two years, there have been significant policy and regulatory developments aimed to reduce GHG emissions, notably the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in the United States and the EU’s Fit for 55 package. The introduction of strong and decisive policies and regulations has led to an exponential increase in the announcement of CCS investments, improving the business case for CCS projects.

Authored by the Institute’s Principal Consultant Finance, Selim Cevikel, and Deputy Principal Consultant CCS Technologies, Jerrad Thomas, this thought leadership report provides readers with an overview on:

  • The economic value of CCS and the policy toolbox needed to drive demand for CCS applications, including associated risk factors
  • Key policy drivers supporting CCS development in United States, the European Union and Japan

The report also includes three case studies assessing:

  • Clean hydrogen and ammonia production
  • Midwest CCS CO2 hubs
  • CCS in power generation
