CSS in a Nordic Renewable Energy Scenario

The study looked at the full energy and emissions picture, to estimate the future role of CCS in making the Nordic region climate neutral in 2050.

As a basis for the scenarios, both historic emissions and 2020 plans were considered, with a view on realism in meeting targets in the various areas of energy use. Stakeholders in each Nordic country were interviewed. 


From a decision-making perspective, it may well be faster and safer to install CCS at large sources, instead of waiting for many individuals to change their car and heating system. 


The scenarios show that bio-CCS (negative emissions) could play a marginal, but important role – allowing some fossil fuels in the energy mix.
