Supporting Europe's 2050 climate targets through Carbon Capture and Storage

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) will have a key role to play in Europe’s industrial transition towards net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. CCS are proven, cost-efficient technologies, that are available now and necessary for Europe to reach its target of net-zero emissions by 2050.

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

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.

Innovation Fund: Lessons learnt from the applications to the 2020 calls

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.

Opportunities in CCS: Finding Government Funding and Business Partners

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.
