Carbon capture and Storage Country Attractiveness Index -- Ernst & Young

The Ernst & Young Carbon capture and storage country attractiveness index provides scores for national energy markets, energy infrastructures and their suitability for CCS technologies. The index provides scores out of 100 and is updated on a regular basis. The methodology is based on the long running Ernst & Young Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index.

The long-term CCS index considers structural aspects of the energy market in each country which will impact on large-scale CCS deployment beyond 2015, such as the proportion of coalfired generation and proximity to geological storage. The nearterm CCS index takes a view until 2015 on the attractiveness of investing in CCS demonstration projects.
