This report examines the prospects for carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the EU, in the light of current and forecast carbon prices. It adopts the basic premise of recent International Energy Agency (IEA) studies: that coal-based generation will continue to grow worldwide; that CO2 emissions from coal plants will pose a significant environmental policy challenge; and that CCS is the only currently available technology to directly cap coal-based CO2 emissions.
