With a low carbon future an imperative for governments globally, the Australian Federal Government is placing renewed emphasis on the development and deployment of low emissions technologies with its $5.1 billion Clean Energy
Initiative and the establishment of the Renewable Energy Future Fund as part of
its new Budget.

$2.4 billion is being spent on CCS projects!

Whilst billions of dollars are being invested, proving the commercial viability of CCS projects is still a major stumbling block in progressing the research and development that is being undertaken.

Your influence flows upwards to the corporate strategy and planning, as well as coordinating and implement strategies around carbon reduction management.

The Carbon Capture & Storage Symposium 2010 has been designed to bring together senior level policy makers from State & Federal Government with senior executives from generators, oil and gas companies, investors and technology consultations and solutions providers to discuss key challenges and formulate solutions to transition Australia into a low carbon economy.

Take Away Key Strategies For:

 Considering the Government’s role in facilitating complex commercial agreements
for geological CO2 storage and funding of large commercial-scale projects

ï‚„ Demonstrating proof of concept and identifying opportunities for cost reduction
with an understanding of available low emissions technologies and storage

ï‚„ Addressing investment risk and the high cost of capital by looking at contributing factors including project lead time, carbon pricing, integration with transport, public acceptance and ROI

ï‚„ Coordinating national and local planning to ensure options for strategic pipelines corridors for potential future use by optimising initial infrastructure design for
anticipated future loads

ï‚„ Evaluating operational challenges and regulatory requirements with a look at pilot
projects globally to understand the economics and commercialisation of CCS
