The Government’s Clean Growth Strategy, published on 12 October 2017, commits Government to working with ongoing initiatives in Teesside, Merseyside, South Wales and Grangemouth to test the potential for development of carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS) industrial decarbonisation clusters.

The Department met with Scottish Government, The Crown Estate Scotland, Pale Blue Dot Energy Ltd, Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage and Summit Power on 15 November 2017 to discuss CCUS in Scotland and these discussions continue.
