Collectively, the company’s three Indicator Reports 2018 form a further, criteria-based assessment known as the CCS Readiness Index, or CCS-RI. The 2018 CCS-RI examines over 50 countries using 70 discrete criteria and enables a comparative assessment of countries globally.
The document identifies those nations which are leaders in the creation of an enabling environment for the commercial deployment of CCS, in order to track the progress of CCS deployment.
The following three reports are available on the Global CCS Institute website:
– CCS Policy Indicator (CCS-PI)
– CCS Storage Indicator (CCS-SI)
– Legal & Regulatory Indicator (CCS-LRI)
The Institute’s 2018 CCS-RI assessment has identified four clear groups of nations. The process enables collective analysis and recommendations based on those country’s CCS outlook. The nations are grouped by their similar CCS-RI scores, as well as comparable industrialisation, emissions, and fossil fuel intensity.
The Global CCS Institute is an international climate change organisation whose mission is to accelerate the deployment of CCS as an imperative technology in tackling climate change and providing energy security.
gasworld is thrilled to announce John Scowcroft of the Global CCS Institute as the opening keynote speaker for its CO2 Summit, taking place in Innsbruck, Austria from 6th-7th March, 2017.
The Global CCS Institute held a ceremony on the 29th of March in Xi-an, home of the Terracotta Army, in celebration of a series of ‘historic firsts’ for China and Yanchang Petroleum, one of China’s largest oil and gas companies.
In the last year, the Global CCS Institute stepped up its advocacy and communication efforts to raise awareness of the vital role of CCS as a climate change mitigator. gasworld spoke exclusively with John Scowcroft, the Institute’s Executive Adviser to find out more about the organisation and its work.
