Following the publication of the European Commission’s SET-plan, the Zero Emissions Platform (ZEP) has today released its Executable Plan for enabling CCS in Europe. In its SET-plan communication, the Commission identifies Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) as one of its ten research priorities towards cost-effectively achieving a fundamental transformation of Europe’s energy system. To achieve CCS at commercial scale, the EU requires strong political direction, the right funding mechanisms and a robust investment environment. In this context, ZEP’s plan lays out concrete steps for delivering CCS through existing policies and public financing opportunities and introduces a business model that will ensure a strong case for investing in CCS.
