 Subject: Lack of data on carbon storage and capture

The lack of data on carbon capture and storage (CCS) has been highlighted by representatives of international organisations, Member States and civil society organisations as one of the main obstacles to immediately supporting CCS, which has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This was already an issue prior to the pandemic. Nevertheless, the consequences of the problem are getting worse and will continue to get worse in the future.

Accurate, adequate, comparable, monitored and updated information with a special focus on all the different sectors involved in CCS from an official EU common point of reference is key to a) ensuring the best possible decision-making and policy design; b) boosting research and innovation; and c) forging a better future for CCS and thus for EU society as a whole.

1. What measures does the Commission intend to take to data map the impact of COVID-19 on CCS?

2. Will there be any measures for mapping CCS with monitored and updated data in the long term, focusing on a number of individual sectors?

3. Will the Commission begin procedures for the establishment of a CCS-focused department in Eurostat?
