Energy ministers have agreed to speed up worldwide deployment of carbon capture and storage technology as the three-day global ministerial meeting on clean energy has come to its conclusion.

The Clean Energy Ministerial gathers ministers from around the globe to discuss policies and programs that advance clean energy technology, which in turn improves energy efficiency, expands access to and enhances supply of clean energy.

“There can be no solution to climate change and energy security globally without carbon capture and storage,” stressed British energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne during the meeting in Abu Dhabi.

Carbon capture and storage technology captures carbon dioxide from point power plants and other industrial facilities, and injects it deep underground.
