During last week’s Spring European Council, European Heads of State discussed the 2030 Climate and Energy Framework.  While discussions on Ukraine naturally dominated the Council’s agenda, a decision on climate targets is now delayed until October this year. Speaking after the release of the Council conclusions, ZEP Chairman Dr. Graeme Sweeney commented: “ZEP recognises the importance of tackling energy security and is therefore disappointed that the Council conclusions fail to mention CCS, despite the technology being essential to a balanced energy system and for achieving European climate change mitigation objectives.
