Norwegian CCS Research Centre

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
