Allan Baker, Managing Director and Global Head of Power at Société Générale, lead a Global CCS Institute webinar on Barriers to Project Finance for CCS on 6 October 2011.
Mr. Baker has been heading the effort to position Société Générale as the leading financial institution in the CCS sector as part of the overall low carbon financing strategy of the bank. Despite a number of significant barriers to overcome from a financing perspective, Mr. Baker will outlined why CCS is still considered as an interesting area for his organisation’s future deployment of capital and resources.
After reviewing perceived barriers and risks facing the industry at the moment, including technology, uncertain regulatory environment, project-on-project risk across the full CCS chain and liability management, Mr. Baker outlined the potential rationale for various investors in large-scale CCS demonstration projects, the role for government, and the potential availability of project financing from Banks.
