Together with Accelerating CCS Technologies (ACT) and 11 countries and regions from around the world, Nordic Energy Research is planning a new call for CCUS proposals in 2020. The ambition of ACT is to facilitate the emergence of Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) via transnational funding of projects aimed at accelerating and maturing CCUS technology application through targeted innovation and research activities. Nordic Energy Research will act as a funding partner for the Nordic countries and has allocated 3,5 MNOK for this purpose. This year, ACT will be announcing its third call.

The overarching aim of the call will be to address the technological, environmental, social and economic challenges required to accelerate CCUS. Nordic Energy Research intends to support projects where two or more Nordic partners are involved, focusing on research topics such as social acceptance and environmental impact.

More information about the call will follow.  Companies and organisations that are interested in the call are encouraged to register on the ACT Matchmaking website to team up with strong consortia.
