Carbon Capture and Storage

The need to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases emitted globally is driving a revolution in the way that power is generated and emissions are managed.

Power developers and energy suppliers are now turning their attention to low carbon and renewable forms of energy, including wind, solar, tidal and nuclear. However, in many countries nuclear power is not an acceptable choice or a complete answer.  Accordingly, to ensure a 'green' base-load, some countries are investing in the development of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).


Allen & Overy is at the forefront of this exciting new area of climate change having advised a number of companies on CCS matters. In addition we are active members of the Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA).
