CCUS applied to gas-fired power generation at scale

Why is this gap important?

Applying CCUS to gas-fired power plants can substantially reduce the emissions of the gas-fired fleet. While there are no large-scale CCUS projects at gas-fired plants in operation today, the SDS envisions 35 GW by 2030.

Technology solutions

The main challenge is to operate the CCUS chain in a flexible manner. More research is especially needed on the systems that control the capture plant, to anticipate changes in capture efficiency and respond in a manner that optimises its environmental, economic and operational performance.

What are the leading initiatives?

The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) has announced FEED funding for the world's first commercial gas power project in the United Kingdom, and NET Power is operating a demonstration plant using supercritical CO2 as a working fluid at a gas-fired power plant in the United States.
