CCS Europe Director Chris Davies to speak at CCUS webinar by Florence School of Regulation

CCS Europe Director Chris Davies will attend the online event “Towards CCUS Strategy: what regulatory framework to choose” as panelist on 17 January at 10:00 CET.

The event is organised by the Florence School of Regulation and seeks to foster a policy debate on the future regulatory framework applicable to CCS infrastructure. As the European Commission is expected to publish the upcoming Industrial Carbon Management Strategy on 6 February, the event will touch on the challenges that still lie ahead of its implementation. Current issues include the need for clear definitions on carbon capture technologies, setting up storage capacity and CO2 transport infrastructures and promoting incentives to scale up CCS projects.

Up until now, the Net-Zero Industry Act has set the target to store at least 50 million tonnes of CO2 annually in underground facilities by 2030. In addition, the Aalborg Declaration on accelerating and enabling cross-border CCUS in Europe has also been signed by Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. Having a CCUS Strategy in 2024 in addition to current policy developments is key to accelerating CCS projects at national level and reaching the net-zero emissions targets.

The programme of the event will be as follows:

  • Introductory remarks by Ilaria Conti, Florence School of Regulation
  • Presentation of the Policy Brief by Christopher Jones, Florence School of Regulation
  • A panel discussion, moderated by Andris Piebalgs, Florence School of Regulation, will follow with key interventions by Chris Davies, CEO of CCS Europe, Caroline Braun, Landwärme, Leigh Hancher, Florence School of Regulation, Christian Egenhofer, CEPS and Francois-Regis Mouton, Director Europe, IOGP
  • Conclusions by Edith Hofer, European Commission
