Christoph Frei, Secretary General of the World Energy Council, comments:
“We urgently need to realise the potential of breakthrough technologies such as electricity storage and CC(U)S. The 450 parts per million CO2 goal cannot be achieved without CC(U)S. It is essential, therefore, that there are clear and unambiguous policy and institutional frameworks to support investment in this technology to justify its inclusion in roadmaps and carbon emission reduction strategies.
“Demand for energy services continues to rise and the energy map is changing. Our institutions need to change to keep pace with developments if we are to have a sustainable energy future.
“We must get real in the way we respond to the findings in the World Energy Outlook.”
