The Advanced Power Generation Technology Forum (APGTF)
The Advanced Power Generation Technology Forum (APGTF) is an industry-led stakeholder group that is not associated with any single interest or source of funding. It provides a consistent, long-term, proactive technology focus for the power generation sector in the UK on the research, development and demonstration activities for fossil fuels, with the main focus on carbon abatement technologies (CATs) including carbon capture and storage (CCS). However, it also provides a focus for associated technologies including: large-scale fossil generation >1MW; heat, including waste heat utilisation; CHP; biomass; hydrogen production from fossil fuels; and environmental control technology.
UK Carbon Capture and Storage Community Network (UKCCSC)
The UK Carbon Capture and Storage Community Network (UKCCSC) is a collective of over 250 engineering, technological, natural, environmental, social and economic academic members with CCS interests. There are also roughly 250 industry, governmental and NGO stakeholders who are interested in UKCCSC and contribute to this diverse and vibrant network. UKCCSC is funded by a £1 million grant from Research Councils UK Energy Programme to rapidly expand CCS research in the UK and to provide an open forum for sharing information and ideas in this growing area. The network helps sustain a dynamic and stimulating R&D landscape that is accessible to any member of the UK academic community interested in contributing to research and innovation in CCS, including both early career researchers and established academics.
