News: ETI project identifies cost effective CCS storage sites off the UK coast
Loughborough, 12 May 2016 – A new report produced for the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) and published today (12 May 2016) confirms that there are no technical hurdles to permanently and safely storing large quantities of carbon dioxide off the coast of the UK. There is also the potential that these sites in the North Sea could be developed to provide a CO2 storage hub for CO2 emissions from mainland Europe, enhancing their economic attractiveness.

For further information and access to project outputs please visit the project page on the ETI website: Strategic UK CO2 Storage Appraisal Project

What we provide
Through this website, users can view and interogate over 500 potential CO2 storage sites around offshore UK and understand the role of Carbon Capture & Storage can play in supporting a diverse, affordable and secure energy supply in the UK.
