S4M-03520: Commitment to Carbon Capture and Storage

That the Parliament confirms its commitment to the principle of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in the generation of Scotland’s electricity; considers that the successful application of CCS to clean electricity generation from Scotland’s own substantial gas supplies at such potential sites as Fraserburgh, Cockenzie and Grangemouth will substantially reduce Scotland’s CO2 emissions, and understands that such reliable and non-intermittent generation of electricity will certainly be required for some decades until renewable sources such as marine current, tide and wave technologies and mass electricity storage can be fully developed to provide sustainable and fully predictable electricity generation and provision in the long term.
