Carbon Capture and Storage Conference, 6 March 2014

By Centre for Law and Environment , on 28 January 2014

Kings College, in collaboration with UCL, is organizing a conference on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) on the 6th of March 2014 at Senate House, London. Although framed around CCS, the event deliberately addresses broader questions, raising key issues about the UK’s Climate Change Strategy, the role of Government, technology choices, and public acceptability.

Speakers will include the Government Chief Scientist, who has agreed to speak on the subject for the first time; the Chief Executive of the Climate Change Committee; Prof. Sharon Turner, in her new role as head of climate change at Client Earth; and Robert Smith MP, who chaired the Commons inquiry into CCS last year.
