ZEP response to RED II consultation – Questionnaire

February 10th, 2021|

ZEP responded to the questionnaire on the review of the REDII Directive. ZEP highlighted that the REDII should be amended in order to be consistent with the objective of net-zero GHG emissions by 2050 and with other relevant pieces of legislation. Coordination among different pieces of legislation is critical to deliver a cost-efficient transition to higher 2030 targets, as well as to the objective of climate neutrality by 2050. There is an increasing role for low-carbon hydrogen to play to meet both 2030 and 2050 targets. CCS can play a crucial role in delivering early, large-scale volumes of low-carbon hydrogen from reformed natural gas, which will be needed to achieve the higher EU 2030 emissions reduction target.

ZEP response to the EU ETS consultation

February 5th, 2021|

ZEP responded to the EU ETS consultation highlighting that the revision of the EU ETS will need to be aligned with climate neutrality by 2050 and deliver on the increased 2030 ambitions. The revision of the EU ETS directive will bear several consequences for CCS and CCU projects. 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.

ZEP response to the adopted act: Proposal for a Regulation on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure and repealing Regulation

January 29th, 2021|

ZEP responded to the consultation on the revised TEN-E Regulation, highlighting several key messages on carbon dioxide networks, CO2 transport modalities, CO2 storage, and the timely development of CO2 transport and storage infrastructure to kick-start a clean hydrogen economy for the EU, where early, large-scale volumes of low-carbon hydrogen are produced and delivered for industrial and residential use.

The crucial role of low-carbon hydrogen production to achieve Europe’s climate ambition: A technical assessment

January 14th, 2021|Tags: |

This report from ZEP's Temporary Working Group on Hydrogen focuses on the need for blue hydrogen and considers production techniques, costs, scalability, and emissions reduction potential. The report emphasises the need for investment in shared infrastructure networks for both CO2 and hydrogen and also includes recommendations for policymakers.
