The CO2GeoNet Open Forum offered a unique opportunity for stakeholders and major players in the CCS arena and wider energy–climate debate to meet and discuss recent developments with Europe's largest group of researchers on CO2 geological storage. Michelle presented on 'Developing a national portfolio of CO2 storage in the UK: the UK CO2Stored database and site portfolio'. Ceri Vincent is chair of the CO2GeoNet Executive Committee so was asked to give a short talk on advancing geological storage of CO2 through CO2GeoNet activities and what is needed to alleviate the concerns of potential storage site operators.
BGS participated on behalf of CO2GeoNet at the International Scientific Conference "Our Common Future under Climate Change" held in Paris 7 – 10 July ahead of the Conference of the Parties which will also be held in Paris later this year (COP 21). BGS presented on assured capacity and safe geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) during a parallel session titled "Negative emissions for climate change stabilisation and the role of CO2 geological storage".
During this conference, the representatives from CO2GeoNet, EERA (the European Energy Research Alliance), GCCSI (the Global CCS Institute) and IEAGHG (the IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme) prepared this statement to emphasise the role of CCS (Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage) as a viable and flexible climate change mitigation technology.
