Support stakeholders in zero emission fossil fuel power plants and energy intensive industry


This proposal is submitted in response to call LC-SC3-CC-4-2018. The overarching goal of this project is to draw together a broad, effective and inclusive network of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) – hereafter referred to as CCUS – stakeholders to support the development of zero emission fossil fuel power plants and energy intensive industries.

Supporting the coordination of diverse stakeholders - including the private and public sectors - will contribute to a common agreement on the role that CCUS technologies can play in the transition to a low-carbon economy.

This proposal will support the coordination of the stakeholders’ activities through the SET-Plan CCUS European Technology Innovation Platform (ETIP). A key activity of the ETIP will be to support progress of the CCUS Research and Innovation (R&I) activities contained in the SET-Plan CCS and CCU Implementation Plan . The Implementation Plan was developed by a temporary working group and adopted by the Set Plan Steering Group on 27th September 2017. The Implementation Plan R&I activities will support delivery of the SET-Plan targets agreed for Action 9 on CCS and CCU.

This proposal is to continue the ETIP ZEP activities supported through the project SESZEP funded under LCE-36-2016. The grant for this project ends on the 30th of April 2018 and so there will be a gap in the support to the ETIP stakeholders. If this proposal is successful we would wish to start providing support to the stakeholders at the earliest possible opportunity in order to minimise disruption . If this proposal is successful we would like to discuss the options for a timely start for these services with the Commission.
