Description: The CCS Commercialisation Programme aims to build confidence and drive down costs of developing a cost competitive CCS industry, by supporting practical experience in the design, construction and operation of commercial scale CCS with £1bn Government capital funding and support under Electricity Market Reform. As a result of the CCS Programme existing fossil fuel supplies (gas & coal) will be used more cleanly, maintaining the diversity of our fuel mix; emissions from electricity generation will be reduced; in addition to providing a flexible and predictable supply of low carbon electricity generation, that can respond to changes in demand.

DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The [Amber] RAG rating reflects the good progress that has been made in the Programme since its official launch in March 2012. As one of the Government’s Top 40 Infrastructure Projects, there is a significant programme of work ahead to take forward the first CCS Projects as part of the broader initiative to commercialise CCS in the UK. At the current stage of the programme (i.e. planning and design), no better than an Amber RAG rating would normally be expected. The review made some recommendations with respect to the contract management processes for the FEED contracts ahead of contract signature, which were implemented; DECC subsequently signed two FEED contracts in Dec 2013 and Feb 2014 for the White Rose and Peterhead CCS projects respectively.
Start date: 2011-10-25
End date: 2050-03-31
Schedule text: The start date represents the approval of Strategic Outline Business Case (SOC) for the CCS Commercialisation Programme. The end date represents the decommissioning of CO2 store. The on-going Front End Engineering Design work will further mature the timetable for detailed design, construction, operation and decommissioning.
Baseline: £36.60m
Forecast: £36.56m
Variance: -0.11%
Variance text: The 2013-14 budget includes costs for managing the Programme (which are not drawn from the £1bn budget) and HMG’s contribution towards the Developers’ costs of conducting Front End Engineering Design (FEED) studies, which are expected to complete towards the end of 2015.
