The report argues that CCS creates significant opportunity to create new jobs and bring wider benefits for the UK and European industry, but that public EU funding must be made available to ensure that the technology can be demonstrated quickly at a commercial scale and subsequently deployed more widely.
Critics argue that Europe cannot risk the construction of new unabated coal plants while CCS is being demonstrated. The publication therefore also looks in depth at how Europe can follow California's experience with emissions performance standards for fossil fuel power stations, which would help to provide regulatory certainty for CCS.
