The article reports that group of European utilities urged the European Union to focus its plans for support of carbon capture and storage (CCS) and renewable energy on CCS projects, such as Kingsnorth. According to Eurelectric, majority of the 300 million allowances in the Emissions Trading Scheme should benefit CCS because renewables could access many other subsidies. Environment group WWF said a new standard for carbon emissions should be set in case CCS failed.
