CCS Wire

This EC press release, issued 23 July, is worth noting. The 16-July EFTA annoucement itself is here.

In so far as I’m aware, this is the first state aid approval in EU & EEA for a CCS demonstration project (as opposed to pilot projects and other smaller-scale research activities). Next in the pipeline is the UK post-combustion competition, albeit a scheme that is not expected to be determined by the Commission until sometime next year.

I’m very keen to monitor (and report here) the development and implementation of all public aid schemes for CCS demonstration, and so would welcome being sent this information as and when it becomes available. //MJ
