  • Carbon capture and storage (CCS) could be a key technology to tackle climate change
  • However, there are many economic, political, financial and technological uncertainties that hamper its development and deployment
  • Comprehensive government policy support is needed to reduce these uncertainties sufficiently to enable further progress
  • It is not necessary to resolve all uncertainties in order to make CCS financeable in the UK
  • The UK CCS commercialisation programme needs to make rapid progress, with firm commitments to build several demonstration projects as soon as possible
