||Given the required speed of roll-out, cost and complexity of the future CCS infrastructure in the UK, modelling will play a crucial role in ensuring a practical, cost effective and robust network of assets. Modelling can potentially support decisions at a range of business levels, from strategic planning through to plant & system operation and maintenance.
Through detailed strategic analysis and stakeholder engagement, the ETI has identified that a need exists to develop a Modelling Tool-Kit for partial (but full-chain) CCS systems to develop understanding of and support business decisions around the design, operation and maintenance of assets (eg power stations, compressor stations) within a future CCS system.
The ETI has completed a study to define the requirements for such a Modelling Tool-Kit, both in terms of functionality of the component & whole system models and the modelling environment within which such models would be developed. The ETI is now seeking to establish and invest in a project to develop such a model through this Request for Proposals (RfP). It is anticipated that the ETI will provide funding of the order of £2 million to the successful bidders
