Increased use of renewable energy is better at reducing greenhouse gases than adding carbon capture and storage to existing power plants. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a technology that can capture up to 90 per cent of the carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and factories. These remove emissions electricity generation and industrial processes, preventing the carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere. International climate change models – such as in the Paris Agreement – are based on installing carbon capture at coal and natural gas power stations. But the study, the first to compare the two technologies, shows building more renewable energy sources would have the same effect while using less energy resources.
