Groningen Centre of Energy Law (GCEL) organizes a seminar on carbon capture and storage

17 November 2009

Date:  Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th November
Time: 09.00 - 16.30 hours
Venue: Martiniplaza, Groningen

The Groningen Centre of Energy Law (GCEL) specializes, inter alia, in the legal framework for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). At the Energy Delta Convention 2009, GCEL will give a follow-up of the CCS developments in the EU. In addition to an overview of legal and policy developments in some European jurisdictions, we will also discuss several subjects in more detail such as the organization of piped transportation of CO2 and the regulation of third party access to storage and pipeline facilities. Papers will be presented by members of GCEL and other national and/or international experts. Finally, GCEL will present during the EDC 2009 a monograph on the “Legal Design of Carbon Capture and Storage in the Netherlands from an International and EU Perspective”, edited by Martha Roggenkamp and Edwin Woerdman (respectively director and co-director of the centre).
