"Despite an impressive reduction in our power sector emissions over the past decade, the UK stands at a climate change crossroads. In order to have any hope of meeting our existing climate change targets, we need to drive deeper decarbonisation in heating, transport and heavy industry." -- Luke Warren, CEO, UK Carbon Capture and Storage Association.

The UK has 33 pct of Europe's CO2 storage capacity, and as much as the rest of the EU combined -- creating a potentially significant market opportunity to 'sell' storage space. It also has the considerable assets, infrastructure and skills needed to become Europe's leader in developing the technology, according to the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Association.
