Scottish Cluster launched to promote CCS and hydrogen


A cross-sector group has come together to support the development low carbon technologies, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS) and hydrogen, to help the decarbonisation of Scotland and the wider UK industry.

Launched today (13th May), the Scottish Cluster aims to unify Scottish industries, communities and business, calling on the Scottish and UK Governments to deliver the actions needed to allow such technologies blossom to full potential.

With the potential to address up to nine million tonnes of CO2 that currently comes from the top emitting sectors in Scotland, the Scottish Cluster hopes to establish a very large CO2 transportation and storage solution, including shipping CO2 through Scottish ports.

Looking at what could be achieved, the group emphasised Scotland’s potential, highlighting the Acorn Project, led by Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy, as one of the most mature UK CCS and hydrogen projects and is positioned to be the most cost-effective and scalable CCS project in the UK.
