Perspectives on CCS

  1. 1. Perspectives on CCSFrom the ENGO Network on CCS Camilla Skriung, ZERO
  2. 2. The ENGO Network on CCS• Created in 2011• Members:Clean Air Task Force, E3G, Environmental DefenseFund, Green Alliance, Natural Resources DefenseCouncil, The Bellona Foundation, The ClimateInstitute, The Pembina Institute, World ResourcesInstitute and Zero Emission Resource Organisation• A coordinator based in Texas• Informal network
  3. 3. Background• ENGOs coming together around the safe and effective deployment of CCS as a timely mitigation tool for combating climate change.• To have a common voice• A tool for cooperation and sharing knowledge
  4. 4. Goals• Ensure that CCS is performed and regulated safely, in a manner that protects our climate, human health and the environment.• Pursue domestic and international policies, regulations and initiatives that enable CCS to deliver on its emissions reduction potential.• Disseminate scientifically sound and objective information on CCS technology.
  5. 5. • ​Work toward common positions and responses to international developments in the CCS arena.• Work to phase out the construction of new unabated, conventional coal-fired power stations as soon as possible, with CCS playing a part of the solution.• In developed countries, no new, conventional coal-fired generation should be constructed without CCS.• Work to incorporate CCS in other types of fossil- fired power generation, industrial sectors, and in combination with sustainable biomass.
  6. 6. The ENGO Network paper• To broaden the discussion of CCS as a complement to the key strategies of energy efficiency and renewable resources in combating climate change• Made to present at COP18• Written by members of The ENGO Network on CCS
  7. 7. • Describes the status of CCS in our respective countries and regions• A call to action for increased international, governmental support.• Gives recommendations for policy framework globally and in each country
  8. 8. Policy needs for CCS• Limits on carbon emissions and an associated price on carbon• Overcome the initial high-cost hurdle for projects• Regulations mandating or providing a pathway for CCS deployment• Regulations for ensuring environmental protection and managing the risks associated with CCS
  9. 9. EU recommendations/needs• Show that CCS can clearly form part of a low-carbon future. Especially the case for the use of CCS on industrial sources of CO2 emissions or on gas-fired power plants.• Such an approach would also appeal to politicians who are concerned by the impact of the economic crisis and the risk of carbon leakage and job losses.• A positive motivation for CCS is sorely needed to counteract the (often erroneously) negative perceptions of CCS to date.
  10. 10. • Increase the carbon price to demonstrate that it can be an effective means of reducing emissions and shaping longtime investment decisions• Strengthen the Emission Trading Scheme (ETS)• Solve the issue around the (even on short term) continued use of coal and CCS as part of that
  11. 11. • Finalize and fasten the processes of the CO2 storage directive, the 6 European Economic Recovery Plan projects, and the New Entrants Reserve of the ETS (NER300) funding.
  12. 12. Germany recommendations/needs• A better CCS law that allows for testing and demos of the whole CCS chain• An educated debate: The public/NGO/citizen groups need scientifically accurate information and proof (demos) that CCS can be safe, effective and environmentally friendly
  13. 13. • The info and messaging coming from trusted actors that carry objectivity and credibility• More focus on CCS on industrial applications (concrete, cement, steel..)• Investigate the pipeline infrastructure possibilities: off shore storage
  14. 14. Norway recommendations/needs• Continued and extended use of the policy of obligatory CCS in permits for building any new gas-fired power• Establishing an infrastructure for transport and storage• A new political and financial framework for CCS:
  15. 15. • The offshore CO2 tax should be increased and used for a fund dedicated to climate change technical solutions, like CCS www.zeroco2.no Camilla@zero.no
