PRESS RELEASE – Zero Emissions Platform welcomes agreement on European Climate Law, supporting a climate-neutral Europe by 2050

On 21 April – just ahead of Earth Day and the United States Leaders Summit on Climate, which the European Commission and Council will attend – the European Parliament’s and Council of the European Union’s negotiators have reached a provisional agreement on the European Climate Law, which proposes a legally binding target of net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050.

Infographic – Europe needs robust accounting for carbon dioxide removal

This infographic summarises ZEP's report 'Europe needs robust accounting for carbon dioxide removal', produced by ZEP's Temporary Working Group on Carbon Dioxide Removal. The report provides a definition of carbon dioxide removal (based on the four principles presented in the previous ZEP report ‘Europe needs a definition of carbon dioxide removal’) that defines a screening process to identify whether CCS and CCU projects may lead to CDR and outlines the factors that need to be considered when assessing a project’s potential for CDR.

Infographic – The crucial role of low-carbon hydrogen production to achieve Europe’s climate ambition

This infographic summarises ZEP's report 'The crucial role of low-carbon hydrogen production to achieve Europe’s climate ambition: A technical assessment', produced by ZEP’s Temporary Working Group on Hydrogen. The report focuses on the need for blue hydrogen and considers production techniques, costs, scalability, and emissions reduction potential. It also emphasises the need for investment in shared infrastructure networks for both CO2 and hydrogen and also includes recommendations for policymakers.

PRESS RELEASE – Revised TEN-E Regulation must acknowledge CO2 transport and storage are both critical to achieve climate neutrality in the EU

The European Commission has presented the revision of the Trans-European Networks for Energy (TEN-E) Regulation. With this revision, the Commission aims to ensure that the EU’s energy infrastructure is fully consistent with the EU target to reach climate neutrality by 2050. Following the announcement of the revision, ZEP has sent a letter to Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson, highlighting several issues with the revision – notably the absence of CO2 storage and CO2 transport modalities other than pipeline.

Infographic – Revision of the TEN-E Regulation

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.

Infographic – European Strategy for Energy System Integration

This infographic summarises ZEP's response to the 'Roadmap on Strategy for Energy System Integration'. ZEP supports the EU’s objective of climate neutrality by 2050. While designing a strategy for a net-zero compliant energy system, ZEP believes that a technology-neutral approach should be privileged. All low-carbon technologies, such as CCS and CCU, that are scientifically proven and readily available, should be deployed to support a cost-efficient trajectory to climate neutrality.
