EERA JP CCS: Coordinating energy research for a low Carbon Europe
Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) is a key element in decarbonising the power and energy intensive industry sector and thus reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The CCS Joint Programme (JP) is dedicated to reaching the globally agreed objectives identified as necessary enablers for large scale deployment of CCS:
- Cost competitive and energy efficient CO2 capture methods and processes
- Efficient, permanent and cost-effective storage
- Effective design and operation of CO2 transport systems

CCS JP involves over 31 members and eight associated members from more than 12 countries who have committed more than 270 person years/year to carry out joint R&D activities.
The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) contributes to coordinate a massive public research effort to develop more efficient and cheaper low carbon energy technologies. CCS JP is one of EERA's joint programmes. The EERA JPs are aligned with the priorities for low carbon technologies defines in the SET-Plan.
