Regulatory framework for CCS in the Nordic countries


Publish date
All Nordic countries have set ambitious targets to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through various national goals and legislation. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) has a key role in strategies to achieve net-zero emissions through mitigating emissions from fossil fuels and removing CO2 permanently from the atmosphere. This project aimed to analyse regulatory aspects that are relevant for deployment of CCS-based mitigation options in a Nordic context. The report identifies similarities and differences between the Nordic countries concerning CCS regulation, barriers to CCS deployment due to regulatory frameworks, and currently ongoing regulatory development aimed at promoting responsible CCS deployment. Recommendations are provided concerning areas where further development, coordination, and capacity building might be prioritised by the Nordic countries.
