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
ZEP responded to the Innovation Fund consultation on an amendment of the delegated regulation to enable a choice between a one-stage or two-stage application procedure for the next large-scale call. ZEP’s input included a positive reply with reservations and some questions, and further comments ahead of the second large-scale call.
The first ZEP Network Policy & Economics meeting of the year takes place this morning. The discussion will include:
➡️ TEN-E Regulation
➡️ EU ETS #InnovationFund
➡️ ZEP working group on Directive on geological storage of CO2
In a #CCS & #CCU context, BioCCS & Waste-to-Energy with CCS will play a key role for decarbonisation of energy-intensive industries & managing residual waste in cities – providing a real, sustainable alternative when recycling & reuse has taken place https://t.co/7zc85QLogG (6/6)
