Carbon Capture and Storage as Part of our Future Energy System

14 January 2014 | Posted by Steve Griffiths

Fossil power generation is a reality that we must deal with effectively. The IEA expects that by 2020, coal-fired and gas-fired power plants will still represent >58% of total electricity generating capacity globally and CCS is a key means of dealing with the CO2 generated. Of course, avoiding the generation of CO2 from the power and industrial sectors is an optimal solution but is it realistic to expect that energy efficiency and renewable power alone will be deployed quickly enough and broadly enough to be able to make the impact needed?
