Global CCS Institute submission to: the European Commission’s consultative communication on the future of carbon capture and storage in Europe
11th July 2013
Earlier this year, the European Commission initiated a debate on the options available to ensure the timely development of CCS and released a Consultative Communication on The future of Carbon Capture and Storage in Europe.
The need for the debate is driven by recognition that fossil fuels will remain an integral part of the future energy mix in the European Union. At the same time the challenges experienced in successfully establishing any large-scale CCS demonstration projects in Europe underline the issues in eliminating CO2 emissions this century in a cost-effective manner.
The Consultation identified many of the issues faced by CCS project developers and seeks advice on the best policy framework to ensure that the demonstration and further deployment of CCS takes place without further delay.
