The article reports that the European Commission has softened its plans to demand that all new coal-fired power stations are fitted with carbon capture and storage technology from 2014. According to Jan Panek, head of coal and oil at the Commission's energy and transport directorate, mandatory storage had been considered as an option. Instead, the new directive would require only an assessment of the potential for capturing carbon dioxide from new coal-fired plants before permits were issued.
