Funding boost for Shell and SSE’s gas carbon capture plan

Extract from article by The Telegraph Energy Editor published on 24 Feb 2014

Plans to capture carbon dioxide emissions from a gas-fired power station in Aberdeenshire and bury them beneath the North Sea have won tens of millions of pounds in government funding. Ed Davey, the energy secretary, on Monday announces the funding for Royal Dutch Shell and SSE’s Peterhead carbon capture and storage (CCS) project, which would be the first commercial-scale gas-fired CCS plant. Shell’s UK chairman Ed Daniels, says that if Peterhead is successful it would “reinforce the UK’s leadership on responding to climate change and could act as a major boost to the CCS industry as a whole”.
