Tom Greatrex: Real danger UK's lead in CCS technology will be lost

Tom Greatrex MP, Labour’s Shadow Energy Minister, responding to reports  from Brussels that the UK will lose out on vital EU carbon capture and  storage (CCS) funding because of the UK Government’s failure to provide  “funding detail”, has written to the European Commissioner for Climate  Action seeking urgent clarification.

Tom Greatrex MP said:

“Ed Davey must clarify immediately his Government's position on CCS  funding after yet more reports that UK projects will lose out on vital EU  match funding because of prevarication in Whitehall.

“The Coalition Agreement committed the Government to financially  supporting four CCS projects. Yet rather than make a decision to lever in  up to €600m of EU funding Ed Davey produced a shortlist with no financial commitment - effectively kicking a decision into the long grass. Reports  from Brussels suggest this latest example of the chaos and confusion in  DECC have scuppered the chance of UK projects attracting vital match  funding.

“There is now a real danger that the UK's lead in CCS technology will be  lost due to Government incompetence and indecision.”
