The Scottish Parliament’s Economy, Jobs, and Fair Work Committee has now published its report on Scotland's draft Climate Change Plan following a parliamentary session at which SCCS Director, Professor Stuart Haszeldine, provided evidence.
Energy sector experts gave evidence to an MSP committee meeting today on the Scottish Government’s recent draft climate change plan and energy strategy. The panel, which included Professor Stuart Haszeldine, SCCS Director, responded to questions relating to the effective decarbonisation of Scotland’s energy system by 2032.
SCCS welcomes the launch this week of the Scottish Government’s draft energy strategy, which sets out its vision for delivering a “safe and reliable” energy system up to 2050 in line with Scotland’s climate ambitions.
The National Audit Office (NAO) has today published its report into the UK Government’s running of a second Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) competition. The agency has been analysing how the competition, which had set aside £1 billion for demonstrating CCS, was managed between 2012 and 2015 before its cancellation in November 2015. The report recommends that lessons learned from the competition should be used to guide a new CCS strategy.
