Events

We will be sharing the results of the project in a variety of ways, to suit our stakeholders, including webinars and a final project event in 2018. All event details will be available here, and you can also sign up for our e-newsletter to keep in touch.

The ACT Acorn Consortium invites you to join our first webinar, Acorn 2025: a pathway to decarbonising the UK.

The Acorn CCS project is a full-chain industrial carbon capture and storage (CCS) project being developed in north east Scotland. The linked ACT Acorn project is an international research collaboration co-funded by BEIS and the European Commission, and outputs are an important contribution to the development of Acorn.

Our webinar will introduce the Acorn project as a “look back” from the year 2025. From this future perspective, our speakers will showcase the results from the ACT Acorn study, focusing on the growth of an integrated CCS network from an initial capture plant at St Fergus, which now handles CO2 from a variety of sources – including CO2 from the local production of hydrogen and imported from other countries.

You will hear from several members of the consortium, who will address different areas of the study, from the technical details of construction and initial CO2 injection into the storage site to public perception as well as the policy and regulatory issues the project faced.

The speakers will address the importance of this early research in reaching significant project milestones in the UK and will point to Acorn’s vital role as one of several major success stories from the UK and Scottish Government’s respective clean growth and energy strategies.
