About the Network

The European CCS Demonstration Project Network was established in 2009 by the European Commission to accelerate the deployment of safe, large-scale and commercially viable CCS projects.  To achieve this goal, this community of leading industrial-scale, and fully integrated, demonstration projects is committed to sharing knowledge and experiences. 

The European CCS Demonstration Projects Network is a network of the five leading CCS projects in Europe, Compostilla (Spain) Don Valley (UK) Porto Tolle (Italy) ROAD (The Netherlands) and Sleipner (Norway). The Network is composed of 2 post-combustion power projects, one oxyfuel power project, one IGCC power project and a gas processing, amine capture project, all capturing or planning to capture over 1MtCO2/Yr. Sleipner is the only project currently in operation.

CCS power plants could be seen in the market if this is incentivized by regulation and/or if they become competitive with their unabated counterparts, if the additional investment and operational costs, caused in part by efficiency reductions, are compensated by sufficiently high carbon prices (or direct financial support)

The Council committed to cooperate further to address the need for fuel diversification in emerging economies and the importance of transitioning to competitive, safe and sustainable low carbon energy systems, notably through further development and deployment of renewable energies, energy efficiency, and deployment of carbon capture storage and utilisation.
