The proposed project seeks to generate knowledge by developing Technology Roadmaps (TRMs), which are at the inter-disciplinary intersection of three subject domains, (1) energy technologies, which underpin the circular carbon economy (CCE) framework and enable the transition toward net-zero (2) climate policies, which are the levers to expediting and managing the energy transition; and (3) sustainability, which provides the oversight and direction of the energy.
The project is of a multi-year timeline aiming to develop TRMs for priority technologies for the Kingdom to assist in policymaking of climate change policies, to accelerate investment, pace, scale and consensus-building for technology development for meeting climate targets, and to enable a smooth energy transition.
The current proposal focuses on the first phase of the project – Developing the Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage Technology Roadmap.
Subsequent priority technologies will be identified as the project progresses and priorities are assessed.
The project seeks to conduct a techno-economic analysis of energy technology innovations for developing TRMs for advancing the global CCE, with a focus for the first phase on CCUS.
