National Grid ESO have released their Future Energy Scenarios Report which outlines credible pathways for the future of energy – each scenario considers how much energy we might need and where it could come from.
Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) is necessary if we are to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. C-Capture’s pilot project at the UK’s largest power station is highlighted in the report as an important step in the wide scale deployment of BECCS.
C-Capture’s founder Chris Rayner said “C-Capture are delighted to see their pilot project featured in the report on Future Energy Scenarios by National Grid ESO. The importance of scalable negative emissions technologies, such as the BECCS work we are trialling at Drax, is recognised as being particularly valuable as an approach for offsetting very hard to decarbonise emissions, for example aviation. Such technologies are vital if we are to achieve the net zero target by 2050. All of us at C-Capture are proud to be playing a crucial role in addressing the current climate emergency.”
