Abstract: The authors introduce the UK’s CCS development strategy and the implementation scheme, and analyze from various angles on the background and reasons that UK actively promoted the CCS development and valued cooperation with China as well. UK has been developing CCS since the beginning of the 1990s. Especially some of energy policies such as Energy White Paper and Energy Act promulgated have laid the sound foundation furthering the development of CCS. Until now a series of activities such as CCS competition/CCS demonstration projects have been conducted. During the process of implementation, it can be found that China has been considered one of important factors in the UK’s decision on how to promote CCS technology roadmap and how to promote international cooperation. So China’s future coal market as well as the position in climate change’s politics have been and will be one of important factors that UK considered.

摘要: 详细介绍了英国CCS发展战略和具体实施举措,并从多个角度分析和探讨英国发展CCS及其积极推进与中国合作的原因。自20世纪90年代初以来, 英国一直在积极推进CCS的发展, 特别是随着《能源白皮书》、《能源法》等战略性文件的颁布, 进一步奠定了发展CCS的政策基础, 相继实施了竞标计划、示范项目等一系列措施。在实施过程中, 除考虑自身能源结构和能源安全外, 英国更多把发展CCS瞄准于未来全球煤电市场以及气候外交的战略上, 中国元素成为其关注的重要因素之一。中国巨大的煤电市场以及在气候变化政治格局中的地位, 成为英国促进与中国合作的重要原因。
