Next steps for CCUS policy and commercialisation - policy and long-term deployment, the clusters programme, commercialisation, supply chain, global outlook

Morning, Tuesday, 26th April 2022

This conference looks at next steps for carbon capture, utilisation, and storage, assessing priorities for the Carbon Sequencing Process and for realising wider benefits from CCUS technologies.

It comes during a period of renewed focus on the development and commercialisation of carbon capture technologies in the UK, with the Government viewing it as critical to meeting its commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, and integral to economic growth and helping tackle regional disparities.

The discussion also takes place against the backdrop of the UK’s CCUS Cluster Sequencing Process, with the agenda looking at Track-1 Clusters, next steps and outstanding issues, and at priorities for progression to Phase-2.

Areas for discussion include:

  • policy priorities for supporting sector development, growth, and commercialisation
  • enabling impact to be demonstrated, including the role in net-zero targets
  • developing the supply chain
  • priorities for investment and technology deployment
  • UK CCUS in a global context

We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with Beatrice Filkin, Deputy Director, CCUS, BEIS; Ruth Herbert, Chief Executive, CCSA; and Christoph Beuttler, Head of Climate Policy, Climeworks.

The discussion is bringing together stakeholders with key policy officials who are due to attend from BEIS; Defra; DIT; DfT; the Health & Safety Executive; the Planning Inspectorate; and the Welsh Government.
