The UCL Institute for Sustainable Reources (ISR) and the Global CCS Institute warmly invite you to attend a panel discussion on the role of carbon capture and storage in meeting climate policy targets.
As the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) draws near, this event will bring together leading experts from government, industry, academia and the media to discuss the deployment of CCS as a well-evidenced and versatile climate change mitigation technology. The discussion will also focus on the role of CCS in delivering “a new energy economy.”

This event is organised to mark the launch of UCL ISR authored research which makes a positive case for the large-scale removal of CO2 emissions from a range of industrial processes, including electricity and heat generation, and the production of synthetic and hydrogen fuels. The Report also furthers the understanding on the contribution of CCS to a decarbonised energy future.

The discussion will be moderated by Roger Harrabin, BBC Environmental Analyst.

Speakers include: 

  • Professor Paul Ekins OBE, Professor of Resources and Environmental Policy and Director of UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources
  • The Rt. Hon John Gummer, Lord Deben, Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change
  • David Hone, Chief Climate Change Adviser, Shell International
  • Dr Nick Hughes, Research Associate, UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources
  • Samantha McCulloch, Energy Analyst, International Energy Agency
  • Julio Friedmann, former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Fossil Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy
