Energy: Power Stations

Volume 715: debated on Wednesday 2 December 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many combustion power stations in the United Kingdom will be fitted with carbon capture technology by 2020. [HL82]

The Government will support a programme of up to four full chain commercial-scale carbon capture and storage demonstration projects in Britain, to be operational by 2020. In addition, there are likely to be a number of research and development and pilot projects that test capture technology only—for example the Environmental Transformation Fund's support for an oxy-fuel combustion project at Doosan Babcock in Renfrew.
