Carbon capture and storage (CCS) are the way forward, at least for the time being, according to the expert.
He added: “Incredible challenges are ahead.
“First, consumers need to pay for the technology. It’s capital intensive and engineering intensive.
“However, CCS will be brought by the traditional energy industry – oil and gas for the subsurface and the utility and hydrogen industry for the surface faculties.
“The engineering talent is available. A strong economic model is needed.”
By some estimates, carbon capture could be a £720billion ($1trillion) market by 2030.
The technology involves drawing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air and transforming the carbon into a form that can be trapped in the ground.
Although experts agree fossil fuels are not going to disappear overnight, scientists believe green energy has to be the way forward.
