Getting to zero carbon or 80% by 2050 is a tough task, its going to cost money but as with anything that costs money we should careful consider the most cost effective way to get there.
Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) is a technology that has the potential to capture and store about 85% of the carbon emissions from power stations. If we install CCS technology on all our Australian power stations we could reduce our grid carbon intensity from over 1kgCO2 per kWh to less than 0.3kgCO2 per kWh. Awesome.
Garnaut puts it as being one of the keys to reducing Australia’s grid carbon intensity. But how much does it cost? And is renewable better?
CCS – what is it and how much does it costs?
In very broad terms CCS technology extracts the CO2 from the exhaust stacks of power stations, converts it into liquid form and then…
