CCS Europe event "De-risking funding for CCS"

May 29, 2024 at 2:00pm - 5pm
Radisson Red Hotel, Rue d'Idalie 35, 1050 Brussels

On 29 May, CCS Europe is hosting an event on "De-risking Funding for Carbon Capture and Storage".

Following the recent adoption of the European Union's long-awaited Industrial Carbon Management Strategy (ICMS), the urgent need for widespread deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies stands out as an indispensable pillar of the EU’s decarbonisation objectives for 2050. However, this deployment cannot be achieved without massive financial investments from industry, Member States, and the EU itself.

Through this event, we aim to shed light on what is needed from a financing and funding point of view to unlock CCS projects within the EU. The discussion will be organized around two panel discussions, aiming to respectively address national financing incentives for CCS and how private capital can be leveraged to as a re-risking tool for CCS investments. The discussion will also include a presentation by Deloitte on their recent publication  ‘CCS seeking a bankable business model.
