- ETI issues Request for Proposals seeking partners to deliver a new CCS project, with up to £2.5m funding provided by DECC
- Project is to identify the next phase of sites under the North Sea to store CO2 emissions
- Deadline for proposals – 5th February 2015
December 17th 2014 – The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) is seeking partners to deliver a project to identify the next phase of sites deep under the seabed
in the North Sea and other UK waters to store the CO2 emissions from coal and gas power stations and heavy industry plants.
The project is being delivered by the ETI and funded by DECC as the government looks to make the most of the North Sea and development of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) as a key part of ensuring that the UK can transition to a low carbon energy system in the most secure and cost-effective way.
ETI is seeking partners to deliver the project which will build upon the work of the ETI’s UK Storage Appraisal Project, which has created CO2Stored – the UK’s CO2 storage atlas which is available through The Crown Estate and the British Geological Survey. Participants in this project will progress the appraisal of selected sites towards readiness for Final Investment Decisions to help with the de-risking of these stores for potential future storage developers.
Andrew Green, Programme Manager, CCS at ETI who is leading the project said:
“At the ETI we see CCS as a key enabler of any transition to a low carbon energy system in the UK. The work this project will deliver will build knowledge and with that confidence in sites based in the UK waters to provide an economic case for their further development and use it as a basis for the further expansion of CCS in the UK. We are delighted to have been asked by DECC to act as delivery agents for this critically important project”
