Speakers: Dr Mathieu Lucquiaud

As part of the IOP Energy series, Dr Mathieu Lucquiaud will discuss the challenges and opportunities for the first generation of CCS plants in the UK.
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) enables the use of fossil fuels to be decoupled from their associated CO2 emissions.
The scheme to deliver the first large-scale CCS project is currently ongoing, and the implications of capture-readiness on coal and gas power plants as well as on the sizing of CO2 transport equipment will be discussed.
Possible operating scenarios with CCS will be presented, where these plants vary their electricity output to respond to signals in the electricity and/or the carbon market(s) by changing their CO2 capture level, adding capacity reserve to the grid and without necessarily increasing their average yearly carbon emissions.
