SET-Plan conference, EERA JP CCS side event: CCS - key enabler for a fully decarbonized energy system


The side event on CCS gave an overview of CCS technologies and status to a interested audience on 11th December 2014 in Rome, Italy. The relevance of CCS in the energy and climate policy for Europe towards 2030 and 2050. Under this framework the cost competitiveness of CCS and RES was presented as well.
The panel debate – moderated by Graeme Sweeney, ETP-ZEP – raised different issues such as:
• CCS technology status for various processes
• What does CCUS mean and how can we use CO2 to create value
• Circular economy and CO2 to enable a sustainable manufacturing base for Europe
• Transport and infrastructure – case for the German process industry
• How can we link this together within the framework for energy and climate in Europe whilst maintaining competitiveness, creating jobs and satisfying security of supply
