Description: The CCS Commercialisation Programme aims to build confidence and drive down costs of developing CCS power projects. It supports practical experience in the design, construction and operation of up to two commercial scale CCS projects, by providing up to £1bn of Government capital funding and negotiating an appropriate Contracts for Difference. The CCS Programme aims to bring forward projects that will help make CCS competitive with other low carbon technologies by the 2020s, enabling existing fossil fuel supplies (gas and coal) to be used more cleanly, maintaining the diversity of our fuel mix. This will reduce emissions from electricity generation, in addition to providing a flexible and predictable supply of low carbon electricity generation that can respond to changes in demand. The CCS Programme will play an important role in meeting our carbon targets flexibly and cost effectively, while maintaining energy security.

DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Programme addressed the recommendations and issues highlighted by the MPA in the 2013 Project Assessment Review (PAR) and successfully signed 2 Front End Engineering Design contracts in December 2013 and February 2014. The Programme is scheduled for a PAR in 2015.
Start date: 2011-10-25
End date: 2050-03-31
Schedule text: The start date represents the approval of the Strategic Outline Business Case (SOC) for a new CCS Programme - The CCS Commercialisation Programme. Following extended preferred bidder selection and negotiations for Front End Engineering Design (FEED) study, two FEED study contracts were awarded in December 2013 and February 2014. 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.
