The Networking Group on Carbon Capture, Use and Storage (NGCCUS) was established in 2019 by the Nordic Committee of Senior Officials for Energy Policies (EK-E) and consists of representatives from the Nordic and Baltic countries’ ministries. The group meets twice a year (spring and fall) and aims to:

  • promote information exchange and cooperation on CCUS policy development and decarbonisation,
  • discuss CCUS issues concerning policies and strategies and make proposals to the EK-E for example on EU regulations, and
  • monitor the development in the decarbonisation area and within CCUS in the Nordic countries, in the Nordic Baltic co-operation and within the framework of the EU BSR strategy throughout the Baltic Sea region, with focus on all technologies and system solutions.

The NGCCUS also acts as the advisory board to the Baltic Carbon Forum, which is hosted by the BASRECCS Network every year in Tallinn, Estonia. Nordic Energy Research is the appointed secretariat of NGCCUS and supports the group in their work.
