The seminar was titled: "The role of law in CCS deployment – Regulatory incentives to enable carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Norway”, and was hosted by UiO: Faculty of Law, Department of Geosciences and UiO: Energy.
This 2-hour seminar was the brainchild of Ingrid Anell (Geoscience) and co-hosted and realised by Catherine Banet (UIO: Law).
The message was loud and clear:
Legal rules are as important as economic factors and technical solutions for the deployment of CCS technologies. Regulatory legal framework and transparency provides essential support for safe CCS. Legal certainty preserves interest and encourages stakeholders from public and private investors.
Well-founded research and reasoning left the audience in no doubt as the seminar concluded. Described well by one of the audience:
"This was one of the best events I have been to in a long time - great plan and super presentations - I had a moment of significant learning that I greatly enjoyed. The seminar gave me new visions on how our society will move and change in the years to come; insight that is required in order to successfully compete for research funds."
The following day, 15 of November the event went on to host a workshop aimed at PhD’s and Post Docs from Norwegian universities with focus on outreach. Link to full seminar programme (pdf).
