North-South-East-West: building political support for CCS and CCU in Europe
Image: 

Carbon Capture Storage and/or Utilisation (CCUS) is increasingly being acknowledged as a necessary tool to achieve the decarbonisation of the European economy by 2050. CCUS technologies have a role to play in facilitating the Just Transition, enabling skilled jobs in high-emitting industries to be retained, and allowing workers in oil and gas to apply their skills in the CO₂ transport and storage sector. At the moment, the majority of mature CCUS projects in Europe have been developed in Northern and Western European countries.

On 28 April, the Commission is organising an online event on first two calls for projects launched in 2020 under the Innovation Fund.

The event will provide an overview of the project applications invited to the second stage of the large-scale call, and present lessons learnt and best practices. It will also provide an overview of the applications received for the small-scale call and present the results of the applicants’ survey on the application process. Finally, it will give an outlook on the second round of Innovation Fund calls planned for the fourth quarter of 2021.

Global CCS Institute

9:00 am Washington DC (EST) / 14:00 pm London (GMT) / 15:00 pm Brussels (CET)

2021 could well be The Year of CCS. The growth in CCS projects is being driven by many factors: an increasing realization of the dangers of climate change, an acknowledge of the important role CCS plays in net-zero scenarios, decarbonization commitments from governments and business, and increased financial investment from both.

The role of CCS in the Green Deal - Webinar by Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS Initiative
Image: 

The EU Green Deal expects that the European economy becomes climate neutral by 2050, and a 55% reduction of greenhouse gases is required by 2030 in the associated Climate Target Plan. There is a broad agreement across public, stakeholder and international analyses of EU decarbonisation pathways that CCS will be needed at scale to decarbonise energy intensive industries - some of those also suggest that blue hydrogen will play an important role in the coming decades.

Green Recovery: CCUS to support green jobs in industry
Image: 

Covid-19 has shown that governments can take rapid, decisive and unprecedented measures in the face of a looming threat, and this has prompted calls to use investment to ‘build back better’ as countries recover. This event was about exploring the role of carbon capture storage and/or utilisation (CCUS) in both the just transition to a net-zero Europe, and a green recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
