Inventory and review of government and institutional policies and incentives contributing to CO2 capture and geological storage
This report by Energy Resources Management of London (UK) identifies, reviews and summarises existing incentives and public policies or regulations that allow, inhibit or stimulate the geological storage of CO2 as a GreenHouse Gas (GHG) mitigation option.
The report highlights how regulations, incentives and public policies treat CO2 capture and geological storage (compared to other GHG mitigation options) and how this might develop in future.
Given the lack of experience in most countries with developing either commercial or demonstration projects for CO2 capture and geological storage, the lack of specific regulations and tools has also been considered to determine whether it is a constraint to future development of the technology.
