The European Commission has published its call for proposals for NER300 funding for renewables and CCS projects. The relevant documents can be found on the EC website. We are currently reviewing the documents and will publish guidance shortly. In the meantime, if you have questions please send them to occs@decc.gsi.gov.uk or ner.renewables@decc.gsi.gov.uk.

Whilst we are aiming to be in a position to select UK CCS demonstration projects 2-4 within a timetable commensurate with the NER process, there is no guarantee that we will be able to do so. We therefore cannot provide assurances that CCS winners through the NER process will receive funding from the UK Government. This does not affect our commitment to providing support to 4 CCS demonstration projects. We are aiming to publish further details regarding projects 2-4 by the end of the year.

It is expected that any successful renewables projects would match the NER300 funding with private sector funds.
