As part of the European Council conclusions on the 2030 framework for climate and energy policies, the EU leaders agreed on the 23rd October to continue and extend the NER300 facility, a financing instrument launched in 2010 which raised over €2 billion for supporting installations of CCS and innovative renewable energy technologies.

Held to coincide with the Boundary Dam project launch, the event was attended by an audience of Parliamentarians and EP staff representing some of the key countries where CCS could play an important role: including the UK, Romania, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland. Attendees were briefed on progress achieved in Canada, the vital importance of ROAD Project in the Netherlands, and the role played by public engagement in acceptance of the technology.
