Gordon Brown’s environmental adviser praises Norwegian PM’s efforts on CCS

At a workshop held in London on 23 April, Michael Jacobs, special adviser on environmental affairs to Prime Minister Gordon Brown, stressed that Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has been brought forth by forward-thinking political leaders as a solution to environmental challenges. He particularly praised Prime Minister Stoltenberg, whose initiatives have given the political leaders of other countries an increased understanding of the possibilities offered by this new technology.

Mr Jacobs spoke in his keynote address of how Norway has been leading the way in the development of CCS, running a test centre and full-scale CCS plant at Mongstad in Western Norway.

The London workshop drew together over 100 representatives from leading British and Norwegian companies to discuss the commercial challenges present in the development of technological solutions for Carbon Capture and Storage. These are key issues in the international climate debate and also in the strategic dialogue between the UK and Norway. The workshop was organised by Innovation Norway, the Carbon Capture and Storage Association and the Norwegian Embassy in cooperation with Deutsche Bank UK.
