Prefeasibility Study CO2 Smart Grid

The Potential of Carbon Capture, Transport, Usage and Storage

Published: 03/10/2017

As a starting point for a more in-depth investigation, the collective around the CO2 smart grid, including project developer BLOC and 22 public and private companies, called for an objective high-level feasibility assessment of their intended CO2 smart grid (CO2 SG). The CO2 SG concept consists of carbon capture & usage (CCU) with the possibility to include storage (CCS). This pre-feasibility assessment shows whether the initiative provides sufficient potential in terms of technology, business potential, societal and climate impact and whether there is a regulatory and policy match. To assess this potential, Ecofys, a Navigant company, took a stepwise approach to answer the following questions:

  • What climate benefits can be realised by a CO2 SG?
  • What is the potential for the re-use of CO2 in the Netherlands in the short term (<5 years) and longer term (10 years)?
  • What are the key success factors or barriers for the development of a CO2 SG? 

This report provides scoping guidance, actionable recommendations and follow-up questions for the full feasibility study that will look at the topics described above in much greater detail.
