Could CCS own the radical middle ground in the energy transition?

Craig Golinowski from Carbon Infrastructure Partners discusses the need for tech like CCS to balance out renewables to avoid further energy crises and allow for a full transition

In this episode, Craig Golinowski joins Alex to talk about the concept of the carbon paradox, and what role CCS needs to play in the energy transition. Find out about the concept of the paradox being seen in the transition to renewables where, without solving intermittency and other short-medium term challenges, energy stability can be put at risk and may lead to more use of heavy emitting fuels as ‘patches’ to the energy system. Listen in as Alex and Craig discuss this, the market demand for CCS and the market model for CCS as a utility.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans. Check out Decarb Connect’s offerings and learn about the Decarbonisation Leaders Network members, meetups and benefits.
