Abstract

Whilst carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies are now in the demonstration phase, they are still characterised
by a range of technical, economic, policy, social and legal uncertainties. This paper presents the results of an
interdisciplinary research project funded by the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC). The aim of the project was to
analyse the main uncertainties facing potential investors in CCS and policy makers wishing to support these
technologies through demonstration to commercial deployment. The paper presents a framework for the analysis of these uncertainties, and applies this framework to nine analogue case studies of CCS. These case studies have focused on historical developments in technologies and/or policy frameworks where one or more of these uncertainties has been prominent and have, in most cases, been partly resolved. The paper also applies the insights from these historical case studies to develop three potential pathways for CCS deployment in the UK over the period to 2030. Finally, the paper concludes with some implications for CCS policies and strategies.
