Carbon Capture Utilisation And Storage

EDM number 910 in 2017-19, proposed by Ronnie Campbell on 06/02/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Coal.

That this House believes in a low carbon economy, but further believes that coal is a crucial bridge to that low carbon economy; believes with commercially deployable carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) and ultra-super critical coal fired power stations, coal can be, and should be, part of that UK low carbon energy generation mix beyond 2025; believes a vibrant UK coal industry is also essential for the UK steel, cement, sugar, food and drink, and carbon fibre industries; notes that coal provides low cost electricity generation capacity, thereby helping keep consumer bills low and maintaining electricity market flexibility; further notes that coal mined in the UK creates jobs and reduces the distance coal has to travel, thereby saving carbon in transportation, helps reduce the balance of trade deficit, ensures it is mined in a safe manner to the highest environmental and labour force standards, supports local businesses who provide support services to UK surface coal mines, keeps funds and skills with the UK, increases the security of supply of power by reducing reliance on foreign countries for imported fuel; notes that coal is one of the best fuels for base load requirements and for black starts, is easily stored; and calls on the Government to consider how it can best support the UK coal industry with significant CCUS R&D funding measures by moderating the carbon floor price and encouraging UK industry and coal fired power stations to buy UK produced coal over imported coal.
