Energy UK comments on publication of CCUS Cost Challenge Taskforce Report
Responding to the publication today of the CCUS Cost Challenge Taskforce Report, “Delivering Clean Growth”, Energy UK has made the following comment:
“We are pleased to be part of the Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) Cost Challenge Taskforce and the CCUS Council and we support the recommendations and actions set out in the Government commissioned report published today. CCUS has huge potential for supporting the ongoing decarbonisation of the UK economy and developing the UK’s global leadership in this technology. What’s more, we believe that it can complement least-cost renewable technologies to decarbonise sectors which it would be otherwise difficult to do so like heavy industry and heat.
"CCUS supports the aims of the recent Clean Growth Strategy and we look forward to working with Government and industry partners to quickly develop and expand the use of this vital technology”
