Legal & Regulatory Indicator (CCS-LRI)
16th October 2018
Law and regulation remains a critical element of a government’s policy response to support the development and deployment of CCS. Robust legal and regulatory frameworks provide certainty for businesses eager to engage in innovation, and the deployment of CCS.
The CCS-LRI offers a detailed examination and assessment of national legal and regulatory frameworks in 55 countries and examines a range of legal and regulatory factors likely to be critical for the regulation of the technology.

Carbon capture and storage: a vital low carbon technology that can deliver on economic development, energy security, and climate goals
2nd November 2015
The Global CCS Institute’s Senior Advisor Policy & Regulatory, Pamela Tomski, suggests recommendations for policy makers to consider to accelerate the commercial deployment of CCS.
CCS, as a part of a portfolio of low carbon emissions technologies, can deliver on climate goals and in many countries simultaneously meet energy security and sustainable economic development goals.
Global CCS Institute CCS legal and regulatory indicator
29th September 2015
The Institute’s CCS Legal and Regulatory Indicator represents a detailed examination and assessment of 55 countries’ legal and regulatory frameworks for the technology. The Indicator considers a broad range of legal and regulatory factors, which are likely to be critical to the regulation of CCS, and it is hoped that it will prove a valuable model for tracking progress and opportunities for the development of legal frameworks worldwide.

법적 책임과 이산화탄소 포집 및 저장 . 비교 연구
15th June 2015
보고서는 탄소 포집 및 저장(이하 CCS)과 관련된 운영 책임에 관한 법적 문제들을 다루고 있다. CCS 활동은 발전소 또는 공장에서의 CO2 포집, 파이프, 해상 및 육상 수송을 통한 농축 상태의 CO2수송, 내륙 및 바다의 깊은 지하에 CO2 장기저장이라는 세 가지 별개의 활동을 포함한다. 포집과 수송에 관련된 책임 문제는 다른 산업 활동에 관련된 문제들과 크게 다르지 않을 것으로 보인다. 그리고 적용되는 법이 상당부분 중복됨에도 불구하고, CO2 저장은 적절한 책임 제도를 고안하는데 상당한 과제를 만들어낼 수 있고CO2 저장기간이 매우 길며 사용하는 기술이 아직도 상대적으로 새로운 기술이기 때문에 이 보고서는 저장에 초점을 맞추고 있다.

CCS in the Baltic Sea Region – Bastor 2. Work package 4: legal and fiscal aspects
14th April 2015
This report provides an analysis of the current and suggested legal framework that could regulate CCS activities in Sweden and the wider Baltic Sea region. The evolution of a well-functioning legal framework for regional CCS operations is expected to be time consuming, with the early identification of potential hurdles critical to all stakeholders.
David Langlet was commissioned by Elforsk to analyse legal and fiscal aspects of CCS in the Baltic Sea region. The study was carried out jointly with Nils Rydberg who brought expertise on the CCS value chain and its actors. This report is part of the project Bastor2 (Baltic Storage of CO2), with the overriding objective to assess the opportunities and conditions for CO2 sequestration in the Baltic Sea Area. The project, which ran from June 2012 through September 2014, was financed by the Swedish Energy Agency, the Global CCS Institute and a number of Swedish industrial and energy companies.
Global CCS Institute submission to: the European Commission’s consultation on revision of the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) Directive
31st March 2015
The European Council has concluded that 400 million allowances in the period 2021 to 2030 should be dedicated under the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) to setting up an innovation fund to support demonstration projects of carbon capture and storage (CCS), in addition to other low carbon technologies.
To make this fund operational, a legal basis has to be created in the EU ETS Directive. In this submission the Global CCS Institute sets out its views on the innovation fund in response to the European Commission’s request for stakeholders to participate in the public consultation on the revision of the ETS Directive (established by Directive 2003/87/EC).
