The Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Infrastructure Fund announced at Budget 2020 will enhance long-term competitiveness of UK’s industrial regions by providing at least £800m to establish CCS in at least two UK clusters, one by the mid-2020s and another by 2030. The CCS Infrastructure Fund will support delivery of our Industrial Clusters Mission.

We will work collaboratively with all potential projects across the UK, with value for money considerations at the centre, before taking decisions on how, and where, the Fund will be allocated.
