Techno-economic analysis of carbon capture and storage in Southern Africa

Client: World Bank

Period: December 2010–April 2011

Project leader:  Alison Hughes

Others in project team: Catherine Fedorsky, Brett Cohen, Bruno Merven

The project aims to assess the costs of various opportunities for carbon capture and storage (for emissions from electricity generation) in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia and Mozambique. It is being done in collaboration with two other organisations - Energy Institute Hrvoje Poza (EIHP) in Croatia,which is looking at similar issue in the Balkan countries, and the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) in Belgium, which is doing the costing. A local stakeholder workshop will be held to present the findings related to South Africa, and a final report delivered to the World Bank
