Asia Clean Energy Forum 2022: CCUS Initiative Side-Event ”Financing Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage”

14 June 2022


Deploying carbon capture is a must to reach net-zero targets, across several industries and sectors. This requires hundreds of large-scale projects to be established over the next 10-15 years. Due to often lacking business models, financing large-scale projects is challenging.

This official side-event of the 2022 Asia Clean Energy Forum, organised by the Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS Initiative, brings together governments, the finance sector and expert analysts to discuss how CCUS financing and investment can be accelerated.

We have lined up two expert panels – we look forward to seeing you at this event!
