At the 2011 CEM meeting in Abu Dhabi, the CEM Carbon Capture, Use and Storage Action Group (CCUS AG) presented seven recommendations on concrete, near-term actions to accelerate global carbon capture and storage deployment.

The new report tracks progress made against the 2011 recommendations and focuses on key questions such as how Energy Ministers can continue to drive progress to enable CCS to fully contribute to climate change mitigation.

It concludes that, despite developments in some areas, significant further work is required. CCS financing and industrial applications continue to represent a particularly serious challenge.
