6 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 6 Winning the battle against climate change 9 February 2005: Commission Communication COM(2005) 35 final Winning the battle against climate change 8.Recommendations for EU Climate Policies: The Next Steps Policies: The Next Steps A new phase of the European Climate Change Programme in 2005: The Commission will review progress and explore new actions to systematically exploit cost effective emission reduction options in synergy with the Lisbon strategy. Attention will be paid in particular to energy efficiency, renewable energy, the transport sector (including aviation and maritime transport), and carbon capture and storage.

7 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 7 ECCP WG III (CCS): objective l The general objective of the Working Group is to explore geological carbon capture and storage as a mitigation option by: m reviewing the potential, economics and risks of CCS; m identifying regulatory needs and barriers and exploring the elements of an enabling regulatory framework for the development of environmentally sound CCS; m identifying other barriers that could impede the development of environmentally sound policies to advance CCS, and policies to enable the development of environmentally sound CCS.

8 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 8 Working Group Meetings Four Meetings: l State of play (February 2006) l Risks and economic potential (March 2006) l The regulatory framework (April 2006) l Summary and conclusions (May 2006)

9 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 9 Policy deliverables l Final Report of WG III by May 2006 l Communication on CCS at the end of 2006 or early 2007

11 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 11 Actual and projected progress of GHG reductions in the EU

12 European Commission: Environment Directorate General Slide: 12 Notes: Data exclude emissions and removals from land-use, land-use change and forestry. All EU-15 Member States provided projections assuming existing domestic policies and measures. Several countries provided projections with additional domestic policies and measures. For following Member States the additional effects of the use of Kyoto mechanisms is included: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Spain),. For EU-15 the effect of use of Kyoto mechanisms is calculated based on information from these nine countries. Projections for Poland cover only CO2 and N2O and include LULUCF. Projections for Spain cover only CO2. Projections for Cyprus and Malta are not available. Source: EEA, 2005 Distance-to-target in 2010 (percentage points) for the EU-25, including Kyoto mechanisms
