the actions emanating from a UK CCS Cost

Reduction Task Force report in 2012, and a

UK CCS Roadmap at about the same time.

This also proposed:

• A £125 million R&D and innovation initiative and the setting up of the UK CSS

Research Centre

• Commitments to work with industry to

develop the CCS supply chain

• International focus to share knowledge

gained from the UK programme and to

learn from worldwide projects.

At the end of 2013, DECC published an

update of actions taken since the Task Force

report - and this highlighted how the R&D

spend is focussing on the development of

better, cheaper components and processes;

and on pilot projects to bridge the gap

between lab-scale research and commercial

deployment. Around 100 separate projects

are being funded through the programme.

The update says that having supply chains

capable of providing the required goods and

services is essential. And to make this

happen DECC is working with the EEF to

make sure UK companies are aware of the

potential supply chain opportunities.

Already events to highlight supply chain

opportunities at Peterhead and White Rose

have begun. The first was in London in May

2014 and more are being planned to enable

UK companies to understand the market and

its requirements as it gears up for a new era.
