Deployment potential and macro-economic impacts of carbon dioxide capture and storage in future energy systems

On 23 September 2016 Barbara Koelbl defended her thesis successfull at the Utrecht University. The title of her thesis is: Deployment potential and macro-economic impacts of carbon dioxide capture and storage in future energy systems.

 

CCS can be an attractive option, but its deployment potential is still surrounded by high uncertainty. In particular, the following knowledge gaps exist:
· First, little detailed knowledge exists about the factors that cause the wide range of deployment projections that can be found in the literature. In particular, systematic investigations of the impact of model assumptions, model type and scenario conditions have not yet been undertaken. Among these, the uncertainty in its competitiveness arising from techno-economic parameters is still an issue to be investigated.
· Second, little detailed economic assessment has been conducted for CCS. In particular, little is known about the value added of using CCS for individual sectors. Furthermore, little is known about economic co-effects of CCS in general and in particular for individual economic sectors.
This thesis aims to fill these knowledge gaps by Iooking at the role and the uncertainty in the potential deployment level of CCS. Moreover, this thesis will make a first step in investigating the economic gross effects of using CCS on individual sectors and the upstream economy in terms of Gross Value Added, employment and import dependency.
