Accelerating a shift towards deployment of CCS in Europe through a cross-border CO2 transport infrastructure

Accelerating a shift towards deployment of CCS in Europe through a cross-border CO2 transport infrastructure

Carbon capture, transport and storage (CCS) is a technology that prevents large amounts of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels entering the atmosphere. CCS is the third most important measure to limit global warming by two degrees according to the International Energy Agency.

CCS is not profitable under the current energy regime, and will depend on the regulatory framework, incentives and the future cost of emissions. This is what the GATEWAY project will address.

GATEWAY alignment meeting with stakeholders, 13th September 2016 in Brussels
See the invitation with program and register here.


 

In the GATEWAY project we will:

  • Develop a Pilot case for European CO2 transport infrastructure
  • Provide a model for establishing European CO2 transport infrastructure
  • Define a Project of Common Interest
  • Develop a business case for the Pilot Case
  • Address the risk associated with the Pilot Case and propose measures for de-risking incorporating
  • Assess the funding needs and propose possible financing mechanisms for the Pilot Case

The GATEWAY project is funded by Horizon 2020.
