Strong interest for CCS competition
The Government has today published a list of companies that have signalled their intention to apply to the new UK CCS competition.
Publication of the list is aimed at encouraging further discussion within the CCS industry to support collaboration between companies and any interested suppliers.
This forms part of the new concerted approach the competition is taking to help stimulate the early development of the supply chain for CCS.
A Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesman said:
“This high level of interest proves that the UK is back on track with CCS. From the outset, we are working through collaboration with industry to ensure we make CCS a reality and importantly create the maximum return for what is one of the best offers anywhere in the world.”
The list covers companies that have indicated that they will lead a bid and not all companies that may be involved in that bid. It is not a list of applicants – the closing date for bids remains 3 July and we don’t expect all parties who have expressed an interest to apply. Over the coming weeks DECC will continue to hold meetings with potential bidders to ensure that Government and Industry continue to work together and bidders can submit their best bids possible.
DECC will also be making bidder documentation available in the coming weeks.
