Dr Jon Gibbins, Imperial College

Tracks the development of CCS thinking within Government since the 2003 EWP, setting out the measures that are proposed to support and enable CCS within the 2007 EWP, from a national and international perspective. This includes a discussion on the Government planned approach for designing a competition framework for the UK CCS demonstration and the criteria by which possible proposals will be assessed. The important role that CCS could play in tackling climate change is discussed, including economic considerations, and it is highlighted that commercial demonstration is vital to enable any global roll out. This will require a sustained effort and an immediate start if the potential of CCS is to be realised.
