As the European Union increases the share of renewables in the energy mix, carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies have an important role to play in energy system integration. This report documents the findings of a workgroup convened by ZEP to address this requirement.
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.
Permanent CO2 storage forerunner projects in the North Sea play a key role in Europe's climate change mitigation efforts. But the success of these projects relies on clear guidance that provides operators with regulatory certainty. This report documents the findings of a workgroup convened by ZEP to address this requirement.
The ZEP Network Technology co-chairs and further experts from the research constituency were engaged in preparing a fact-based, academic paper on low-carbon hydrogen. The ZEP paper provides a realistic picture of blue hydrogen and its role for Europe to reach climate-neutrality.
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.
