The International CCS Knowledge Centre is a supporting partner of the 13th annual Canada UK Energy Summit will gather Canadian companies with their UK counterparts to explore industrial decarbonization collaboration and business opportunities for low carbon electrification, hydrogen and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS). One hundred pre-qualified company representatives will participate, in addition to twenty-five Canadian and British government representative who are responsible for the advancement of policy and funding frameworks in the aforementioned areas. The Summit will include a business ‘mission’ of Canadian SMEs who will attend the event, some of whom will present during the afternoon innovators session.
A principal aim of the Summit is to expand export opportunities for Canadian firms into the UK market and strengthen bilateral commercial cooperation. The Summit will cover the following key themes:
Join the Knowledge Centre’s Niall Mac Dowell as he chairs a panel titled: Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS). Strengthened climate goals and new investment incentives are delivering unprecedented momentum for CCUS, with plans for more than 100 new facilities announced in 2021. CCUS technologies will play an important role in meeting net zero targets, including as one of few solutions to tackle emissions from heavy industry and to remove carbon from the atmosphere. Although recent progress is encouraging, the planned pipeline of projects would fall well short of delivering the 1.7 billion tonnes of CO2 capture capacity deployed by 2030 in the Net Zero by 2050 scenario. The panel will discuss how to advance projects in Canada and the UK and explore the collaboration between the two territories.
