The Role of CCUS in the UK Power Sector

Date: Thursday 13 May
Time: 09.00 - 10.30

Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage (CCUS) will be critical in helping the UK reach Net Zero. CCUS can help eliminate emissions from industry, power, hydrogen production, and is a fundamental part of engineered negative emission technologies. The UK government is currently progressing at pace with the development of business models to support deployment of CCUS in line with targets set out in the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan:

  • “CCUS infrastructure deployed in at least 2 industrial clusters by the mid-2020s and 2 further clusters by 2030.”
  • “10 million tonnes of CO2 to be captured annually by 2030.”

Energy UK is particularly interested in the importance of CCUS in decarbonising the power sector and the potentially crucial role the technology will play in maintaining system security. Join us on May 13th to hear from a panel of industry experts on the latest sector developments, why the technology is so important, and what the key next steps should be.

Paul Davies, group Development Director, Viridor
