Carbon Capture London 
Getting ready for Phase 2 and Phase 3 

Thursday November 20, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM GMT


Our London event on Nov 20th will look at what Phase 2 and Phase 3 of UK's Carbon Capture and Storage industry might look like (counting White Rose and Peterhead as Phase 1). 

  • Will we need more direct government subsidy to build the next phase of projects or can they be financed using Contracts for Difference?
  • Will they add-on to the existing projects, so we start to see networks?
  • Will there be an EOR component - revitalising North Sea oilfields at the same time?
  • Will CO2 shipping be involved, to transport CO2 over longer distances?
  • Will the next projects be ones which are already on the drawing board or something completely new?
  • Can there be a better way of financing CCS than the emissions trading scheme?

You can see who has registered so far on the left hand of the registration page.
