This is what you need to know about CCS – Carbon Capture and Storage
Why is there so much talk about storing CO2 underground? Doesn’t it cost more than it’s worth? Here we provide the research scientists’ answers and explanations of why CCS is climate technology that we are completely dependent on. And yes, this can be performed in a safe manner.
Offshore wind-scientist appointed Mission Innovation Champion
John Olav Tande at SINTEF is appointed Norway's Mission Innovation Champion for his innovative research and contribution in dissemination. The award was established by Bill Gates and among others former president Obama during the climate summit meeting in Paris, COP 21.
ELEGANCY Consortium meeting in a historic setting
On 9 November the third ELEGANCY Consortium meeting was held in Brussels, Belgium. With ELEGANCY’s main research focus CCS and hydrogen in mind, the European Gas Research Group (GERG) was a perfect fit to host the event. GERG Brussels offices are in the UNESCO World Heritage listed building Hôtel van Eetvelde.
ELEGANCY Conference 2018
The focus of the ELEGANCY Conference 2018, held in Brussels on 8 November, was bringing together the right knowledge and stakeholders to decarbonize Europe’s energy system. The participants learned how the ELEGANCY project contributes to decarbonizing Europe’s energy system through hydrogen and CCS, project members presented recent results and external stakeholders gave perspectives on both hydrogen and CCS. This blog gives a short overview of the presentations at the conference.
NCCS at GHGT-14: Presentations and posters
At GHGT-14 (Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies conference) in October, FME NCCS had seven oral presentations and 6 poster presentations.
H21NoE: Hydrogen Project that can remove 20 million tons of CO2 a year
Friday 23 November I attended the launch of the H21 North of England (H21NoE) – on a cold winters day. The topic was decarbonising heating/cooling in the UK by means of hydrogen, also providing hydrogen for power balancing and supplies for other sectors like transport. The initiative is brought forward by Northern Gas Networks, Cadent Gas and Equinor.
HighEFF Cross-sector Workshop 2018
24th and 25th October we hosted one of the two annual workshops for the FME HighEFF consortium. Over 100 participants from industry, R&D and academia were present to discuss results and plans for FME HighEFF. The autumn workshop has the ambition to discuss and settle plans for the coming year and also how this can affect the overall working plan for FME HighEFF.
SET Plan Conference 2018: Europe needs to invest more in clean energy R&I. The risk is low and the return is high.
I am asked to give the view from the energy research and innovation community and answer how we can address the challenges ahead in achieving the 2030 and 2050 energy and climate targets of Europe.
