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
With the European Green Deal and the objective of climate neutrality by 2050, the European Commission has a possibility to review all related pieces of legislation. This is an opportunity to remove overlaps or contradictions between existing policies and to fully focus on the net-zero target and GHG emissions reduction. By introducing legislation that is directly compatible with net-zero and focused on GHG/CO2 threshold-driven measures, the energy and climate transition will be more cost-efficient, providing a clearer framework for industry and EU regions to plan and realise their decarbonisation pathways.
