Funding CCS: A road map before Copenhagen.This conference will seek to address some of the major issues associated with CCS during the build up to Copenhagen and will bring together stakeholders from across Europe and internationally.

Funding CCS: A road map before CopenhagenIssues that the conference will address:- What are the key issues relating to CCS as we approach the climate negotiations in Copenhagen?- Is the funding of CCS proportionate to its ultimate potential value keeping in mind that over 50% of our electricity is currently generated from fossil fuels?- Would eventual roll out of CCS at a commercial level extend global reliance on fossil fuels and reduce efforts and innovation in the area of renewables and less polluting fuels or would it change the economics of power generation and make renewables more attractive?- How, going forward, can the Member States and EU institutions best facilitate a carbon market that does not become ineffective or even an obstacle to CCS development and uptake?- With the International Energy Agency predicting that fossil fuels will remain the global energy source of necessity through to 2050, what will be the role played by CCS in reducing European and global GHG emissions? Does CCS face many of the same
