Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCS) is vital to solving the climate crisis, which experts believe will require the world’s emissions to reach net-zero by 2050. To achieve this, the International Energy Agency’s Sustainable Development Scenario (SDS) estimates that ±9% of the world’s emissions reductions must come as a result of deployment of CCS across numerous sectors – requiring a lot more projects all around the world.
Developing countries represent high risk environments for investments in CCS, which create funding gaps for projects. This in turn poses a significant risk to the timely deployment of this vital technology. It is the role of climate finance to help close such funding gaps.
This interactive webinar will examine how CCS projects can be structured in order to benefit from the different climate finance options currently available to support their deployment around the world. Based on a recent report from the Global CCS Institute, this webinar is for anyone interested in executing CCS projects in developing countries, with a particular focus on South East Asia.
