About the Course
Carbon capture and storage is seen by many as a necessary transition technology whilst the world builds out the renewable energy system. And this is not limited to power generation. Today more than 95% of the world’s hydrogen is made from fossil fuels (coal and natural gas), so CCS can play a significant role in reducing the CO2 emissions related to this production. And the hydrogen sector is expected to grow exponentially across the globe in the coming years. For example, the UK recently set a target to produce five gigawatts of hydrogen by 2030, representing a 40-fold increase from the current situation. This ambition is replicated worldwide where national hydrogen strategies, often explicitly citing the need for decarbonising industrial sectors such as construction, steel and cement, have appeared regularly over the past year. The journey to a new, low emission energy system will be challenging and requires much innovation: momentum towards netzero continues to build which calls for many industrial sectors to find ways of decarbonising their operations. Hydrogen is likely to play a significant role, especially in sectors where eliminating emissions is particularly difficult. Early engagement with those low or zero-emissions projects will enable fast movers to reap the maximum from the opportunity presented.
The course aims to provide a practical guide to enable companies to make informed decisions and plans based on the real opportunities that are emerging as the global HCCS sector develops. Delegates will be guided as to where early opportunities are most likely to lie, who is involved and how to get in front of them
