National Carbon Capture and Storage Council

From Global Energy Monitor
(Redirected from National CCS Council)

The National Carbon Capture and Storage Council (NCCSC) is an Australian government body to "oversee the implementation of the National Low Emissions Coal Strategy and the National Carbon Mapping and Infrastructure Plan". The strategy and the plan were developed by the National Low Emissions Coal Council and the Carbon Storage Taskforce (CSTF), bodies which NCCSC replaced.[1]

The Council was established in November 2010.[1]


The Australian government does not state who the members of the council are but states that they are from "the coal industry", "oil and gas sectors", "coal and gas-fired power generators", "representatives of the research community", "several state governments" and the "Australian Government."[1]
