The author asserts that it does not make sense to insist that new combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants are carbon capture ready 30 years before they have to be at a time when Great Britain desperately need new capacity. He looks at carbon capture and storage's (CCS) ability to deliver one-fifth of the emissions reductions needed by 2050. He also cites the role of efficient CCGT plant in reducing emissions while giving a greater energy generation ratio to incurred cost and space.
