 The study looks at the role and possible contribution of CCS in a 2050 renewable/CO2 neutral Nordic region, with the total energy perspective in mind. It examines the full energy picture and how all emissions need to be considered, both large stationary that could have CCS and all other emissions. Mapping of current energy use and emissions in each country, together with mapping of political targets and plans in each country for 2020, enables the elaboration of scenarios for a climate neutral 2050. The study shows how the Nordic region as a whole can go carbon neutral by leveraging carbon negative CCS in combination with fuel switching to more renewable energy sources.
