In September 2012, ENeRG published a position paper explaining the necessity to prepare a European atlas of CO2 storage sites. Looking at the developments in other parts of the world, e.g. the recently published North American Carbon Storage Atlas as well as developments in Australia, Norway and elsewhere, it is clear that Europe falls behind its competitors. A pan-European CO2 storage atlas is urgently needed to provide reliable overview information on the geographical distribution of storage potential across Europe to all interested CCS stakeholders.
