This energy technology roadmap on carbon capture and storage (CCS) identifies, for
the first time, a detailed scenario for the technology’s growth from a handful of
large-scale projects today to over three thousand projects by 2050. It finds that
the next decade is a key “make or break” period for CCS; governments, industry and
public stakeholders must act rapidly to demonstrate CCS at scale around the world
in a variety of settings. The roadmap concludes with a set of near-term actions that
stakeholders will need to take to achieve the roadmap’s vision.
