Approved by the AC71, on 15 June 2022, the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) set forth a paper on enabling emitters covered by the EU and UK ETS to store CO2 across CCS systems, while benefitting from the same incentives. It is understood that full linking between the two systems would take several years of negotiations. A solution for acceptance of CO2 stored in the other system in the shorter term would build on agreements and sharing information on storage application documentation, permitting, monitoring, etc.
