REDII inception impact assessment

September 21st, 2020|

With the European Green Deal and the objective of climate neutrality by 2050, the European Commission has a possibility to review all related pieces of legislation. This is an opportunity to remove overlaps or contradictions between existing policies and to fully focus on the net-zero target and GHG emissions reduction. By introducing legislation that is directly compatible with net-zero and focused on GHG/CO2 threshold-driven measures, the energy and climate transition will be more cost-efficient, providing a clearer framework for industry and EU regions to plan and realise their decarbonisation pathways.

ZEP response to the consultation on EU Emissions Trading System

July 24th, 2020|

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. In the context of the revision of the EU ETS Monitoring and reporting rules, ZEP has provided a response, stating that all CO2 transport modalities – pipeline, ship, barge, truck, and train – should be included in the EU ETS.

ZEP response to the revision of the Trans-European Energy Infrastructure (TEN-E) regulation

July 13th, 2020|

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.

ZEP response to the consultation on 2030 climate target plan

June 23rd, 2020|

Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 in a cost-efficient way remains the primary focus. With a legally binding objective of climate neutrality by 2050, it is critical that the European Union undertakes prompt action to start a just transition towards 2050 in a cost-efficient manner. The upward revision of targets makes the need for CCS at scale even clearer.

ZEP response to ‘Roadmap on Strategy for Energy System Integration’

June 8th, 2020|

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 response to the roadmap on TEN-E regulation

June 8th, 2020|

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 response to the Roadmap on ‘an EU Hydrogen strategy’

June 8th, 2020|

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.
