The UK government will support the CCS Infrastructure Fund to establish CCS in at least two UK sites, one by the mid-2020s, a second by 2030. It aims to establish at least one CO2 capture equipped gas power plant by 2030 with the help of consumer subsidies.
Also, the Budget confirms funding for the Heat Networks Investment Project and provides £270 million of new funding to enable new and existing heat networks to adopt low carbon heat sources in the building sector. The aim is that the heating of homes reaches net-zero by 2050 replacing natural gas and other fossil fuels with low carbon alternatives, such as biomethane.
Funding in the transport sector to reduce vehicle pollution through purchases and investments in zero emission light vehicles, and in the natural environmental sector to increase environmental restoration are also outlined in the budget plan.
