Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a quickly evolving next generation technology which mitigates climate change by capturing and storing carbon dioxide (CO2) before it is released into the atmosphere. CCS technology reduces carbon emissions so plays an essential role in meeting global and regional temperature targets. This Special Report explores the most recent regulatory, political and economic trends and themes arising from CCS technologies and projects.
In its second edition, this Special Report provides a general update on these key features of the technical, political and regulatory aspects of CCS technologies by:
- Focusing on recent changes to the regulatory frameworks for CCS in the European Union and Germany, but also on the international level;
- Assessing the impact of emission trading systems on the economic viability of CCS technologies;
- Providing an overview on recent public funding programmes for creating a market for CCS technologies; and
- Exploring various recent CCS projects and national strategies in implementing CCS technologies.
Pilot CCS projects are successfully proliferating and this Special Report provides the regulatory and political insights to succeed in the rapidly changing CCS market. It will be an invaluable resource for in-house counsel, senior managers, engineers, consultants, researchers and policy makers with an interest in the energy sector and CCS technologies and projects.
