The Government’s view is that carbon capture and storage (CCS) has a potential role in the long-term decarbonisation of the UK’s economy, but its costs must come down.

We will set our plans for CCS in due course, taking into account the findings and recommendations made in the report ‘Lowest Cost Decarbonisation for the UK: the critical role of carbon capture and storage’, published by the Lord Oxburgh-led Parliamentary Advisory Group on CCS.
