Energy and Climate Change Committee

Future of Carbon capture and storage in the UK inquiry

Inquiry status: open

Committee to hold a one-off evidence session

Scope of the inquiry

In November, the Government announced that £1bn of funding set aside for a carbon capture and storage (CCS) competition had been removed. However, CCS is often cited as the means by which we can decarbonise and meet our climate change targets while continuing to use fossil fuels.

The Energy and Climate Change Committee explores the impact of the recent decision on investors and the supply chain and looks at the near- and long-term future of carbon capture and storage in the UK.
