  • Panel 3. Delivering collaboration to ensure the deployment of CCS - Sean McClowry, Global CCS Institute

    1. 1. Delivering collaboration to ensure the safe and effective deployment of CCS: Knowledge Networks Sean McClowry General Manager - Information Management, Global CCS Institute October 2013
    2. 2. Introduction  Status of knowledge sharing  International knowledge sharing  Improving knowledge sharing
    3. 3. Many CCS knowledge networks exist, examples include International CCS Regulatory Network International Carbon Capture and Storage Test Centre Network Bastor 2 Alberta Purity Study European CCS Project Demonstration Network Japanese Knowledge Network Korean Knowledge Network SECARB CCS Costs Network A number of capacity development initiatives
    4. 4. Networks are hard work, global networks are harder  If knowledge networks are not designed or managed properly, little tends to be achieved.  Many knowledge networks have a country or regional focus.  We need to improve international knowledge sharing, but: o International knowledge sharing can be more difficult o Barriers to sharing are more significant and the incentives fewer.  We need to follow the lessons learnt from our most successful networks.
    5. 5. How we can improve international knowledge sharing Clear outcomes • Focus the network on solving problems in a collaborative way. • Clearly identify knowledge gaps and areas of expertise. Practical approaches to information sharing • Remove the focus on sharing confidential information (CI). • Leverage the large amounts of public information already available. Digital technology for better connectivity • Use advanced digital technologies for international knowledge sharing. • Make use of the digital systems of the Global CCS Institute. Engagement outside the CCS community • Some content from the network should be written for an external audience. • Promoting key content to non-CCS practitioners should be a key priority.

    7. 7. Engagement outside the CCS community: $ context Not surprisingly, investments track interest from the public. 160 140 120 100 80 60 40 20 0 2005 2007 2009 2011 Source:
    8. 8. Closing recommendations  International knowledge sharing can work, if we: o Build on our existing networks, o Leverage existing frameworks and digital platforms.  To drive CCS forward it is important to engage beyond our immediate community: o The web offers many opportunities to do this effectively.  The Institute has new initiatives underway that we think can help solve this problem.
