The Carbon Capture and Storage Association is delighted to announce CCUS 2019: Capturing the clean growth opportunities, a one-day conference which will be held in London on Wednesday 6th November and will provide industry, partners, stakeholders and policymakers with the latest developments in this fast-moving sector.
The development of Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS) is a priority infrastructure challenge for the UK and a central pillar of the Government’s industrial strategy, clean growth and low carbon policies.
The change in our energy sector over the last decade has been dramatic but the transformation to a net-zero world will be unprecedented. CCUS is essential to ensure that the energy transition will benefit every part of the economy, going further into power as well as industry and – through the production of clean hydrogen – the heating and transport sectors. The rollout of CCUS in the UK requires the rapid development of a huge new industry whilst its global potential provides the UK with opportunities for international leadership and creating new markets for services and the supply chain.
Deployment of CCUS has already begun and the 18 large scale projects that are operating today are safely storing almost 40 MtCO2 every year.
CCUS 2019 will explore the landscape for carbon capture, usage and storage, recent developments and opportunities for leadership, investment, innovation and growth. Sponsored by DNV GL, the conference will bring together key stakeholders, industry and potential customers.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Alex Cunningham, MP for Stockton North, Shadow Minister for Housing
- David Duiguid, MP for Banff and Buchan
- Liv Hovem, Chief Executive Officer, DNV GL Oil and Gas
- Stuart Broadley FEI, Chief Executive Officer, Energy Industries Council
- Steiner Eikaas, VP Low Carbon Solutions, Equinor
- Carol Gould, Head of Power & Renewables EMEA, MUFG
