The potential role of Carbon Capture and Storage under different policy options

CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) is indicated as an important pillar in the Dutch climate change working program ‘Schoon & Zuinig’. However, the working program does not yeat contain policies to stimulate CCS. Scientific literature provides analyses on the effectiveness of a limited number of policy options, mainly focusing on carbon tax. This research project explores a broader range of policy options. For this, a bottom-up simulation model of the Dutch electricity supply sector was developed.

The central question in this report is: What is the potential role of CO2 Capture and Storage in the Netherlands under different policy options on the mid term (2030)?
