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
This infographic summarises ZEP's response to the revision of the Trans-European Energy Infrastructure (TEN-E) regulation. ZEP supports the European Union’s commitment to reach climate neutrality by 2050, defined as net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. To this end, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) technologies play a crucial role.
As geological storage sites are not evenly distributed among member states, the large-scale deployment of cross-border, European CO2 transport and storage infrastructure is crucial to reach the European Union’s objective of net-zero GHG emissions by 2050. This infrastructure will enable clean, competitive energy and industrial sectors, early large-scale clean hydrogen and, not least, the delivery of significant volumes of carbon emission reductions and removals.
The ZEP Advisory Council Executive Committee October meeting took place online today, with discussions focusing on hydrogen, negative emissions, updates on ZEP reports, and communications and outreach. Going forward, ZEP will continue to engage and provide input on these topics.
This new collaboration is important for #CCS in Europe and shows growing interest from the technology sector. Combining technology and digital expertise can help further the development of CCS projects and accelerate CCS' contribution to meet Europe’s climate goals.
ZEP’s Network Policy & Economics group is having a virtual meeting this morning to discuss the EU ETS, Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism, hydrogen and the Clean Hydrogen Alliance, the strategy on methane, and updates on #CCS & #CCU projects in Europe.
Did you know there is a method to calculate positive effects of CCS & CCU on climate change? Our recent report introduces 3 fundamental characteristics for classification of #CCS & #CCU technologies for climate change abatement. This infographic explains⬇️ https://t.co/lLd5d4I9kj
