How can carbon capture and utilization become an integrated part of a sustainable future energy system and facilitate advanced sector coupling? According to IEA carbon capture is an essential technology to meet the climate targets set by the Paris agreement. In the session “The future role of carbon capture and utilization in a Danish energy system context” at the Nordic Clean Energy Week May 24th, we discuss how carbon re-use in transport fuels can facilitate the development and cost reduction of carbon capture technology.
Energinet.dk recently published their report “Systemperspektiv 2035” that gives an outlook on the future Danish energy system. In this session Anders Bavnhøj will give a presentation on how electro-fuels produced from CO2 and renewable electricity can play an active role in the future energy system by converting intermittent renewable energy into transport fuel. In the second presentation, Larry Baxter from Sustainable Energy Solutions will present their unique carbon capture technology that shows great potential in terms of energy efficiency and cost. Larry Baxter will also explain how it is capable of providing energy storage services to the electric grid. In the last presentation, Søren Knudsen Kær from Aalborg University will give examples of electro-fuel processes that can utilize captured CO2 to produce sustainable liquid transport fuels using renewable electricity.
The session is arranged by Aalborg University and will be moderated by Tejs Laustsen Jensen, Director of Hydrogen Denmark.
