Norwegian CCS Research Centre
Vår Energi supports the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS), which is run by the independent research organisation SINTEF.
The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) 1,5-degree scenario implies that investments are necessary now to qualify storage resources and validate monitoring technologies. Energy and climate targets cannot be met cost-effectively without CCS, while maintaining security of energy supply. The Norwegian Government aims to realise full-scale CCS (Carbon Capture and storage) by 2022.
NCCS will enable fast-track CCS deployment through industry-driven science-based innovation, addressing the major barriers identified within demonstration and industry projects.
- NCCS will through research ensure that Norway remains an international leader in CCS
- NCCS research activities supports achieving CO2 storage in the North Sea
- NCCS will contribute to the government’s ambition to realize a full-scale CCS chain by 2022
- NCCS will exploit the potential of the ECCSEL infrastructure
