The CCS Flagships Program provides support for the accelerated deployment of industrial scale CCS demonstration projects.  This funding will support 2 to 4 projects and there is no maximum level of funding support per project other than the limit of program funds. The CCS Flagships Program builds on the National Low Emissions Coal Initiative (NLECI), which includes research, demonstration, mapping and infrastructure elements, and the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute established by the Government to provide support for the accelerated deployment of industrial-scale CCS projects world-wide.

The program is also complemented by the National CO2 Infrastructure Plan.
