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.
ZEP supports the European Union’s commitment to 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. These technologies represent a readily available, cost-efficient pathway for the decarbonisation of industrial and energy sectors in the European Union. As shown by several modelling scenarios [1, 2], large volumes of CCS will be needed for the EU to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.
ZEP supports the EU’s commitment to climate neutrality by 2050, defined as net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. Clean hydrogen will be a key technology for reducing emissions and achieving climate neutrality, since it provides a stable and flexible energy system, whilst meeting the needs and demands of the electricity, heat, transport and industrial sectors.
