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 successful operation of these demonstration projects is seen as crucial for enabling the widespread commercial application of near zero emission power plants or industrial installations by 2020 to allow Europe to reach its environmental objectives, stimulate job creation, and generate a sustainable economic and industrial base.

02 October 2014

This webinar will be led by Dr Hiroyasu Takase, Managing Director of Quintessa Japan. Knowledge sharing in a multidisciplinary and multi-stakeholder project such as a CCS project, presents challenges for motivating and facilitating creative interactions among experts from diverse areas of practice, as well as interactions between experts and non-expert stakeholders.

05 October 2014 to 10 October 2014

The GHGT conference series is a key international conference on greenhouse gas mitigation technologies especially on CCS (CO2 Capture and Storage).


24 October 2014

'What happens when CO2 is stored underground' is a very useful guide for those at the frontline, communicating and educating the public about CO2 and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. This webinar provides an opportunity to join lead author, Norm Sacuta from the Petroleum Technology Research Council (PTRC) and Kirsty Anderson from the Global CCS Institute, as they give an overview of the resource. 

04 November 2014 to 06 November 2014

The Global CCS Institute invites you to attend its annual conference to coincide with the
launch of the annual Global Status of CCS report. Attendees will hear from
leaders in the CCS/CCUS, climate and energy sectors on themes such as CCS in
the Gulf region and recent international developments in policy and technology

During the European Council meeting in March 2014 the Heads of State discussed the 2030 Climate and Energy Framework. The discussions on energy security dominated the agenda and a decision on climate targets is now delayed until October 2014. The European Council invited the Council and the Commission to analyse the implications for individual Member States of the proposed EU-wide targets for emission reductions and renewable energy and announced it will take stock of progress made on this issue at its meeting in June. However, the Council conclusions did not include CCS, despite the fact that the critical role of CCS in meeting EU and global climate targets cost-effectively has been made clear by the latest IPCC report.

The European Carbon Capture and Storage Demonstration Project Network recommends that the European Council takes account of the elements listed below in its further discussions at its meeting on 26th -27th June.



The European CCS Demonstration Project Network shared the latest activities and learnings from the CCS demonstration projects at a knowledge sharing event hosted by CIUDEN and held in the Technology Development Centre for CO2 capture, located in Cubillos del Sil in the vicinity of Ponferrada, Spain.
