CCS offers a route to decarbonise the energy industry and a way to mitigate emissions from hard-to-abate industries. It is a vital element of the energy transition, yet barriers remain to scale up deployment.
Europe has 189* CCUS projects in the pipeline, with 100+ incorporating storage in the North Sea, yet only 25 of these are operational. CCS Strategy Europe will explore how to overcome the barriers to successful development of CCS projects to make a meaningful contribution to the continent’s net-zero goal through understanding and developing a viable business strategy.
CCS Strategy Europe will bring together the emitters with the project developers and technology specialists to discuss how and why a long-term business strategy for carbon capture is required for the decarbonisation of industry.
