Sheffield, in the north of England, has a long history of steelmaking, and is now home to electrolyser manufacturer ITM Power. However, the UK government is failing to give any clear support to cleaning up steel production using green hydrogen.
Thousands of new power plants, pipelines, LNG terminals and extraction fields reveal investment strategies laden with climate and financial risk.
Emissions data shows that carbon capture and storage has a long way to go if energy companies are serious about using the technology to decarbonise.
Research suggests little conflict between stemming biodiversity loss and a massive buildout of renewables, but opinions differ widely over the use of forests, and over-simplistic decisions about the role of wood in the energy transition must be avoided.
Drax is out to prove that applying carbon capture and storage technologies to biomass-fired energy production is vital to get to net zero. Energy Monitor spoke to the UK power company's CEO Will Gardiner.
Board member Jon Morrish explains how the world’s number two cement maker intends to eliminate its CO2 emissions. Carbon capture, use and storage will be key.
Carbon capture and use can reduce, recycle or even remove emissions from the atmosphere, but its role in climate action depends on the carbon’s origin and destination.
The question is not whether trees, CCS and direct air capture are needed, but what will deliver carbon removal at scale.
