ECO2GEOS – Economic assessment of the CO2 geological onshore storage potential in Sweden

The project aims to assess the potential role of onshore geological storage of CO2 in Sweden to understand if this is an option to investigate further compared with other options that takes us all the way to net-zero or negative emissions. This will be done by i) advancing the methodology used in the evaluation of onshore geological storage of CO2 (technical potential), ii) assessing the economic feasibility of implementing geological sequestration of CO2 from Swedish industries, in relation to other storage options (cost estimates of different storage options) and compare these with iii) the marginal cost of alternative carbon mitigation measures from scenario analysis with TIMES-Sweden.
