Biomass and Fossil Fuel Research Alliance (BF2RA) 2016 - Targeted Call for Proposals

Closing Deadline for Outline Proposals - 1700hrs 19th February 2016

BF2RA (The Biomass and Fossil Fuel Research Alliance) operates a programme to support research into the clean and efficient use of biomass and fossil fuels, to build capacity in this area. Bids are invited for proposals for specific research relating to the following:

  • Energy Storage
  • Improved Performance of Large Plant
  • Asset Management including Intelligent Control

Details of these specific research topics are presented in this linked document

 

New Funding for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Innovation

On 27 November 2014, DECC is making available additional funding for CCS research, development and innovation.  This is part of DECC’s Energy Entrepreneurs Fund (EEF) Phase 4 Competition with £5M for projects in Financial Year 2015/16, with up to £2.5M prioritised for CCS and related projects.  Read the announcement here and details of this funding opportunity here.

DECC are holding a workshop on 10th December to outline how the Energy Entrepreneurs Fund Phase 4 Competition works and give potential CCS applicants the opportunity to network with others.  The workshop will focus on the CCS element of the competition.  Priority will be given to industry applicants whose projects are in CCS and related technologies.

 

Carbon Capture and Storage: What role for R&D in delivering cost-competitive CCS projects in the UK in the 2020s

Thursday, 15th October 2015, from 09:30 to 17:30

Mary Sumner House, 24 Tufton Street , London, SW1P 3RB

The APGTF, CCSA, Coal Research Forum, Knowledge Transfer Network and UK CCS Research Centre will be hosting a joint workshop to identify innovative research and development solutions to support the next generation of CCS projects in the UK, to be followed by a networking reception.

Overview

Building on previous work undertaken by the APGTF, CCSA and UKCCSRC, the event will be an opportunity for industry and academia to consider the lessons learnt from successful CCS projects and work collaboratively to steer the future CCS R&D agenda in the UK. It will explore the challenges associated with second and third generation CCS projects and how research and development could help to solve these challenges, reduce costs and support the development of a sustainable supply chain.

Themes covered by the event include:

  • The role of R&D in delivering early cost-reductions for commercial-scale CCS projects
  • R&D priorities for carbon dioxide capture
  • R&D priorities for carbon dioxide transport and storage
  • Project selection criteria and metrics
  • Future for CCS in the UK
