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
• 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.
