21. Title: Bloomberg Headline: Carbon Storage to Have Important Place in EU 2050 Energy Roadmap Headline: 04/10/2011 The technology to capture carbon dioxide and store it underground will have an “important place” in the European Union 2050 energy roadmap to be published later this year, said Philip Lowe, director general at the European Commission’s energy department. “The share of coal and gas-fired CCS plants could be around 20 percent or approximately 190 gigawatts of
installed capacity,” he told the general assembly of the Zero Emissions Platform in Brussels today. “By 2035, around 30 gigawatts with CCS needs to be build in the EU.” The energy roadmap will focus on decarbonizing the EU economy after 2020 while guaranteeing competitive markets and security of supply, according to Lowe.
