Carbon capture, usage and storage: market engagement on cluster sequencing

Closed 10 Mar 2021

Opened 10 Feb 2021


This consultation sets out a potential approach to cluster sequencing for carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS), and seeks views on this approach from interested stakeholders. 

The consultation covers:

  • A breakdown of a potential two-phase process we may follow in order to allocate CCUS programme support, and the timeline on which we would execute this process
  • The details of the suggested Phase-1 cluster sequencing process, including potential evaluation criteria and the way in which these may be applied 
  • The direction of travel for Phase-2 of the process, including a potential approach for allocating support to specific projects within clusters 

The consultation will be of interest to CCUS stakeholders, including:

  • Investors and developers involved in potential CCUS projects
  • The industrial and energy sectors more widely
  • NGOs and other organisations with an interest in climate and energy

However, any organisation or individual is welcome to respond.
