The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) cites carbon capture and storage (CCS) as driving between 15-55 per cent of the required greenhouse gas emissions abatement by 2100.

To advocate for CCS, the Global CCS Institute is participating in the nineteenth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP19) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). This year will mark the Institute’s third major COP advocacy effort as an Accredited UNFCCC Observer, and fourth engagement overall.

At COP19, we will host three side events on CCS, as well as an exhibition stand within the National Stadium, Warsaw during week two. Our program of side events aims to raise awareness of the critical role that clean energy – and, importantly, CCS – must play in enhancing the ability of nations to commit to significantly greater mitigation ambitions.

Institute events at COP19

Value of the current generation of carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration projects and future prospects

Why, how and when CCS must make a global difference
Tuesday 19 Nov,

The three pillars of energy transformation - a global collaboration by the clean energy community
 

All will be held in the IETA pavilion within the UNFCCC precinct.

By providing expertise to UNFCCC bodies and offering information and advice to a range of stakeholders at this conference, we also aim to position CCS as a critical element of any future cost-effective pathway to decarbonising the global energy supply, in support of a 2015 climate treaty.

If you are attending COP19, we would be delighted to meet with you.
