Webinar: Results from the Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios

In the webinar, experts behind the Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios project will go beyond the headlines and dive deeper into the results

In the webinar, the experts behind the Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios project will go beyond the headlines and dive deeper into the results.

The webinar takes place:

Date: December 8th
Time: 8:30 – 10:00 am

– and is arranged in co-operation with Energiforsk.

Bioenergy and Carbon Capture & Storage

The webinar focuses on the role of bioenergy and carbon capture & storage in reaching the Nordic region’s carbon neutrality targets.

Nordic carbon neutrality targets do not require emissions to be eliminated altogether. Instead, negative emissions and international credits can compensate for some remaining emissions. This means that projected deployment of CCS and technologies for negative emissions, as outlined in the report, highly depend not only on resources and energy demand but also on how national and Nordic climate targets are formulated.

The technologies for carbon removal and negative emissions that have received most attention so far are bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and various land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) measures, for example afforestation and soil carbon sequestration.

The Nordic Clean Energy Scenarios suggest that bioenergy will remain an important fuel in the Nordic system. Given the ongoing and intense debate over the sustainability of bioenergy use, as well as the discussion of electrification, these findings are not without controversy.

The analysis indicate that the potential for bioenergy growth relies on a partial shift away from power and heat towards a stronger role in aviation, shipping and some industrial processes. In contrast, demand growth for biofuels in transport is lower compared to previous, similar studies.
At the webinar further details of the assumptions behind the findings are discussed.
