ZEP is the technical adviser to the EU on the deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) – a European Technology and Innovation Platform (ETIP) under the Commission’s Strategic Energy Technologies Plan (SET-Plan). CCS and CCU will be essential for the European transition to net neutrality, ensuring that power generation and industrial processes are secure, reliable and sustainable
The ZEP Network Technology co-chairs and further experts from the research constituency were engaged in preparing a fact-based, academic paper on low-carbon hydrogen. The ZEP paper provides a realistic picture of blue hydrogen and its role for Europe to reach climate-neutrality.
Today, ZEP hosts a session at #CCUS2021 focusing on influence of 🇪🇺 policy frameworks & role #CCUS technologies will play in mitigating climate change & safeguarding industrial competitiveness. Panel discussion with speakers from @Energy4Europe @NorLightsJV & 🇳🇱 🇩🇰 Governments.
Low-carbon #hydrogen produced from reformed natural gas with #CCS will play a 🔑 role in paving the way towards a clean hydrogen economy. ZEP has prepared a fact-based, academic paper that provides a realistic picture of blue hydrogen in Europe.
📢 On 26 October, join ZEP, @FortumNorge, @Bellona_no & @Oslokommune for an #EUSEW2021 Sustainable Energy Day event focusing on how #CCS can be a solution for 🇪🇺 member states to decarbonise industry & hard-to-abate sectors.

Concluding the session, what is the most important action to take now to support your #CCS & #CCU projects?
-A clear vision on what CCS & CCU mean in net zero targets
-Create a business case & enabling policy framework
-Funding, focus on network & cluster development
