Abstract The aim of this project was to scope out a potential ETI Project which would establish an investment proposal for a new, GW scale, carbon-abated, thermal power station, which minimised risk and built on infrastructure which was at the time being proposed in response to the DECC CCS Commercialisation Competition. This scoping exercise had two major components: a review of potential sites where such a station might be built, taking into account existing infrastructure and planned CO2 transport and storage infrastructure; and the development of an investment model to identify the key features of an investable CCS power project. The ETI’s ultimate objective was to establish a new investment consortium ready to undertake ‘front-end engineering design’ (FEED) on a major thermal power station development incorporating CCS (£2bn+ capex). This initial scoping project sought to create a clear view of the structure of that future FEED study, the likely shape of the power project and to identify potential partners
