CCS Talks: Scaling up the CCS Market to Deliver Net Zero Emissions
1st May 2020
Understanding how the carbon capture and storage (CCS) market is likely to develop over the coming years is of interest to a wide range of stakeholders. It can help inform the timing and design of policies introduced by governments, the scale of the market for potential investors, and the challenges associated with meeting long-term climate targets.
Join Institute experts in conversation as they explain how they see the opportunities for CCS deployment and provide an overview of the near-term and longer-term developments in the CCS market.
