Energy Transition Thursday #8 | CCS

Sustainable business models under the microscope
This event is in English
Free admission

A sustainable business model is equally important as sustainable technologies to reduce our CO2 emissions and make our energy mix greener. In Energy Transition Thursday we discuss promising sustainable techniques and dive deeper into the revenue model behind the technology. During each session, industry specialists analyze the technology and the revenue model. This episode revolves around the theme Carbon Capture and Storage or CCS in short.

Carbon Capture Storage is typically used in large factories that emit a lot of CO2s in one place. These factories are called point sources. The emissions are captured in the chimney where the CO2 is separated from other waste gases. Afterwards, it is transferred and stored deep underground at a minimum depth of 3 kilometers.

Our global energy system relies heavily on fossil fuels. Therefore, CCS is considered an intermediary solution. It is not possible to completely replace fossil fuels that produce emissions right away. On the one hand additional investments are made at this moment to keep up with the energy demand, while on the other hand we need to reach the targets of the Paris Agreement as soon as possible. However, CCS can be used as a long-term solution as well.

Energy Transition Thursday - De energietransitie op de snijtafel
Om onze energiemix snel te vergroenen hebben we meer nodig dan duurzame technieken. Een duurzaam verdienmodel is minstens zo belangrijk. Wie het verdienmodel voor een duurzame techniek sluitend krijgt, heeft goud in handen. In deze serie behandelen we veelbelovende technieken en gaan we dieper in op het verdienmodel achter de techniek. Waar liggen kansen? Welke obstakels moeten nog worden weggewerkt? Wat is feit en wat is fictie? Bij elke sessie ontleden specialisten uit de branche de techniek én het verdienmodel. Daarbij lichten ze de werking van de techniek toe, duiden ze het juridisch kader en verkennen ze hoe financiering kan bijdragen aan versnelling van de techniek. Kom naar Circl en leg elke maand samen met experts de energietransitie op de snijtafel!
