Obstacles and opportunities for onshore geological carbon storage in the UK

Apr 2, 2024

This report evaluates the current state of knowledge on onshore geological carbon storage (GCS) and its feasibility in the UK by examining its technological, economic, regulatory and social aspects. Research and regulatory gaps are highlighted, showing where onshore GCS is under-researched. Greater certainty on the potential of onshore GCS in the UK could be ensured by funding work to close these research gaps.

The report was led by Laurent Chan, Molly James, Millicent Sutton, Dr Tom Kettlety and Prof Myles Allen.
