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.

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.

The role of CCS in the Green Deal - Webinar by Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS Initiative

The EU Green Deal expects that the European economy becomes climate neutral by 2050, and a 55% reduction of greenhouse gases is required by 2030 in the associated Climate Target Plan. There is a broad agreement across public, stakeholder and international analyses of EU decarbonisation pathways that CCS will be needed at scale to decarbonise energy intensive industries - some of those also suggest that blue hydrogen will play an important role in the coming decades.
