Network Policy & Economics

Network Policy and Economics is a network of stakeholders interested in the development and deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage and Carbon Capture and Utilisation in Europe. The network closely follows the ongoing policy developments across Europe, both at a European Commission level and a member state level and provides input through working groups where necessary. The network also focuses on the economics associated with policy decisions and CCS deployment, again working through temporary working groups to publish reports and recommendations. The network meets every 3-4 months to discuss ongoing policy and project development and review the activities of the temporary working groups.
