Bellona letter to EFTA Surveillance Authority (ESA) on the importance of leaving Norwegian electric vehicle incentives unchanged

Today, Bellona sent a recommendations letter to ESA (EFTA Surveillance Authority), highlighting the importance of keeping Norwegian electric vehicle (EV) incentives unchanged for next year. According to media sources, ESA is looking into curbing  VAT exemption for EVs from the beginning of next year, on grounds that EVs have now become much cheaper to produce […]

Biomass with CO2 Capture and Storage (Bio-CCS), the way forward for Europe

Bellona is a Steering Committee member of the European Biofuels Technology Platform (EBTP). In addition to this, the EBTP and the ZEP (Zero Emissions Platform – EU technology platform for CCS, for which Bellona has the vice presidency) on Bellona’s initiative together created a joint taskforce (JTF) on biomass and CCS in early 2011, with Bellona’s President Frederic […]

Improving the Regulatory Framework, optimizing organization of the CCS value chain and financial incentives for CO2-EOR in Europe

The article is a result of scientific work in the ECCO project, a project which received funding from the European Community`s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013). The main objective of the project was to facilitate strategic decision making regarding early and future implementation of CO2 value chains. Europe is the world region with the most comprehensive pricing of CO2 emissions. […]

How to close the gap between global energy demand and renewable energy production

Energy demand scenarios show that there will be a gap between total global energy demand and renewable energy production over the next decades. Therefore, a short-term strategy must be implemented to minimize GHG emissions from existing energy production. This can be achieved by developing a carbon dioxide (CO2) value chain including infrastructure for CO2 capture, transport and safe storage.
