Following the submission of 138 project proposals in March 2022, the Commission has announced, on 12th July, the 17 projects that will receive a total of €1.8 billion in funding under the second call for large-scale innovative clean-tech projects of the Innovation Fund.
The European Commission adopted on 8 March 2022 a Communication called ‘REPowerEU: Joint European Action for more affordable, secure and sustainable energy’ to reduce its dependence on Russian energy imports, reinforce its energy autonomy and address rising energy prices.
In the midst of a geopolitical and energy crisis and ahead of the launch of the REPowerEU plan, ZEP reaffirms the need for all low- and zero-carbon technologies – a technology-neutral and long-term approach to climate action in energy and industry is crucial to avoid jeopardising an already extremely challenging path towards climate neutrality and preserve industrial activity and employment.
This factsheet summarises the findings and conclusions of the ZEP report Experience in developing CO2 storage under the Directive on the geological storage of carbon dioxide. The report is the outcome of a workgroup convened by the Zero Emissions Platform, aiming to facilitate the work of operators and public authorities working on the deployment of CO2 storage projects.
