Potential for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) in the Nordic Region

Objective: To give an overview of the potential for applying CCS in the Nordic countries.

Result summary

The objective of this study was to give an overview of the potential for applying CCS in the Nordic countries (Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland). The realistic potential of CCS in the region was evaluated by taking into account existing and future energy systems and policies, emission sources, potential storage sites, technological, economical and political constraints as well as public acceptance. Special attention was given to identifying promising regional CCS solutions that would have a significant CO2 emission reduction potential and could possibly involve cooperation between Nordic countries with synergical benefits for these.

 

The report includes mapping of CO2 emissions in the Nordic countries from major sources, mapping and quantification of storage possibilities as well as scenarios of possible future CCS deployment in the region. In addition to the mapping, an overview of relevant CCS technology development and R&D activities in the Nordic countries is given. Public awareness of CCS, energy and climate policy frameworks, as well as political issues relevant to the deployment of CCS in the Nordic countries are also addressed.
