CCS + Politics - Essential Insight into Carbon Capture and Storage (and Hydrogen) in the Climate Change Context
This 30 minute presentation gives you a solid understanding of CCS, in much greater depth than the sales talks. This understanding is absolutely necessary to consider the consequences of some perhaps misguided strategic decisions being taken by the Scottish and UK Governments at the moment.
It is made for politicians, decision makers and anyone concerned about climate change. The presentation also covers reasons why these decisions may seem perfectly reasonable, to politicians and others with a limited or partial understanding of how it all connects.
A must watch if you've heard of CCS and Hydrogen, and still assume these important things are well looked after by those in power, and that oil industry "transition" advisers are a good route to valid information. They're not. 13 Aug 2021
Hydrogen Basics for the Energy Transition and Transport (Jul 2021)
For a report covering this and more, with extensive references, please contact Oceanvalley.co.uk.
A 22 minute fact-packed presentation for anyone, from policymakers and investors to activists, interested in what the hydrogen hype is about, whether it is really green, how it can and should be used, what some of these weird colours of hydrogen mean, and how political pressure (UK and Scotland) may move us in the wrong -or right- direction in the end. What is discussed: 1: Hydrogen Basics and the IEA report "Net Zero by 2050", Colours of Hydrogen, Cost of Hydrogen, Hydrogen for Renewables, 2: Uses now and in the transition, 3: Hydrogen in Transport and Mobility, Air, Shipping, Rail, Road 4: Hydrogen, CCS and Politics. Misinformation, Aberdeen, Why suddenly now, The Governments 10-point plan
This presentation was based on a "Hydrogen Primer" presented to Scottish transport-involved 3rd sector professionals and policymakers, and expanded for a greater audience.
Covering political aspects is always risky, but in the climate change context it is essential: the non-fossil industry is ready for government decisions, strategies and incentive measures such as taxes, but governments still seem in thrall to the fossil fuel industry and are delaying effective action.
