Global CCS Institute

Brief description:

The Global CCS Institute (GCCSI) was launched in 2009 as one of the proposals of Australia’s National Low Emissions Coal Initiative, to speed up the development and eventual use of carbon capture and storage technologies worldwide. Based in Australia, it provides international policy and management oversight to the goal of delivering at least 20 commercial-scale CCS plants around the world by 2020 and beyond. The Australian Government has committed $100 million a year towards its operation. GCCSI has an international membership, made up of 361 government, industry, non-government and research organisations from around the world. It has also created partnerships with other CCS protagonists, including the IEA, World Bank, the Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum and the Clinton Climate Initiative, with the aim of tackling hurdles to full-scale international deployment of CCS. The institute seeks to support key R&D projects and promote demonstration projects, create a hub of CCS expertise and provide a knowledge-sharing forum for the global CCS community. It also provides support, financial and advisory, to a number of key CCS projects.
