Panel at GLOBE 2020 on Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage – Feb 12, 2020

Phil hosted a panel discussion at GLOBE 2020 – A Tale of Time Frames: Opportunities and Challenges in the CCUS Ecosystem. GLOBE is a leading conference on climate change and sustainability.

Major international bodies, including the IEA and IPCC, acknowledge much of the world will not be able to meet their emissions reduction targets without carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS). These technologies are often seen as a stepping-stone in the path to decarbonization. Extrapolating the role of CCUS over the upcoming ­­­­­several decades, this dialogue will answer challenging questions in this dynamic space:

  • What’s in the CCUS pipeline in Canada and abroad in between now and 2030? 
  • Who should be doing what to facilitate advancement and uptake of the technologies once they are viable at large scale? 
  • Looking beyond, what are the long-term challenges (technical, market, financing) for CCUS technologies in an increasingly decarbonized world?

Panelists:

  • Kate Chisholm, Senior Vice President, Chief Legal and Sustainability Officer, Capital Power
  • Eric Redman, Chief Executive Officer, Thunderbolt Clean Energy
  • Beth Hardy, Vice-President, Strategy & Stakeholder Relations, International CCS Knowledge Centre
  • Chris Severson-Baker, Alberta Regional Director, Pembina Institute
