Current project

Support stakeholders on Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage of ETIP ZEP and IWG9

  • A 3-year (1 July 2022 – 30 June 2025) Coordinated and Support Action Horizon Europe project funded by the European Union.
  • SINTEF Energy is the Coordinator for the project.
  • The Carbon Capture and Storage Association ASBL is the Secretariate and leads the work of the project.

The overarching goal of this project is:

  • To bring together and further develop a strong inclusive network of CCUS stakeholders – effectively interconnecting and coordinating the activities of CCUS European Technology Innovation Platform (the Zero Emissions Platform, ZEP) and the CCUS SET Plan Implementation Plan Working Group (IWG9) – to support the development and implementation of the SET Plan.
  • To support the alignment and efficient coordination of stakeholders – including industry, researchers, public authorities, civil society – in order to accelerate the delivery of the CCUS research and innovation activities and to progress the emerging policy priorities at EU and national level for the implementation of CCUS, will be crucial over the coming years for Europe to reach the ambitious climate targets for 2030 and 2050.

This will be achieved by:

  • Efficiently aligning and coordinating the activities of ZEP and the IWG9 in a joint work programme
  • Establishing networks and other fora to enable the stakeholders to collaborate and coordinate effectively, pooling expertise, experience and resources to address common challenges
  • Engaging also with other programmes and external stakeholders, facilitating engagement and creating greater interaction and cohesion between the different CCUS activities
  • Supporting the CCUS community to develop clear strategies and recommendations, accompanied by a strong continuous programme for outreach, dissemination and communication.
