Abstract An international workshop was hosted by the British Geological Survey (BGS), supported by the United Kingdom’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), from the 1st to the 3rd of March 2016 at the BGS offices in Keyworth, Nottingham, United Kingdom. The workshop objectives were to: • Examine how pilot, field laboratory and laboratory projects can inform and advance large-scale CO2 storage and low-carbon geo-energy resources. • Reinforce the importance of advancing CCS through practical experience at varied relevant scales: pilots/field labs (testing concepts) and demonstrations (deploy technologies and identify new technical questions for pilots to examine) • Strengthening international links between field lab, pilot, demonstration and large scale project operators to make it easier to share lessons learned • Exchange research learning between CCS and other geo-energy disciplines The workshop outcomes were intended to identify of opportunities for collaboration and development of outline proposals to advance CCS and geo-energy research through practical experience and demonstrations. Workshop invitees included policy makers, demonstration project representatives, academics and pilot project operators. A total of 75 delegates attended, who represented 46 organisations including research institutions, industry (national, multinational and suppliers), global and national CCS networks and trade associations (see attached delegate list – Appendix 1), and a government representative from UK DECC. Delegates were from 13 countries worldwide.
