Director LNG, Hydrogen, CCUS
In collaboration with the Embassy of Canada to Norway and Innovation Norway in Toronto, we are hosting a Virtual Energy Symposium focusing on the Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) and Hydrogen (H2) value chains. The Symposium will include keynote speakers from Canada and Norway, showcasing technologies and solutions providers from both countries.
28 and 29 March
09:00 – 11:30 (MDT)
17:00 – 19:30 (CET)
NORWEP partner: Free
In the webinar you will hear presentations from both Canadian and Norwegian companies and organizations, like The International CCS Knowledge Center, Carboncure, Svante, Varme Energy, Carbon Upcycling, Gassnova, CO2 Hub Nord, NOV, Kongstein, North Ammonia, Hystar and many more.

Norway and Canada have for decades developed strong competence, experience and innovative technology in both CCUS and hydrogen production, representing a clear competitive edge in global markets. CCUS and hydrogen are deemed as important parts of both countries´ decarbonization strategies and regarded as vital means for reaching net zero targets.
As fossil fuel rich countries, Norway and Canada share a strong commitment to emission reduction and environmentally sustainable resource management. There is a national push to further develop the CO2 value chains and CCUS as a solution to cutting GHG emissions. Both countries have hydrogen strategies in place and Canada has tax incentives for CCUS investments. The Canadian government intends for a new investment tax credit to be available across a range of clean hydrogen pathways later in the year. Given the importance of H2 and CCUS for both Norway and Canada, collaboration in these areas should accelerate respective decarbonization efforts even further.
Norwegian H2 & CCS brief
Norwegian industrial actors have produced and utilized hydrogen in large scale since 1927, with companies like Norsk Hydro developing electrolyser technologies that now are used all around the world.
Today, hydrogen technologies, solution providers and projects in Norway are emerging across the entire value chain, including;
Norway has extensive experience with CCS across capture, transport, offshore storage and injection/monitoring, with projects like Sleipner and Snøhvit having injected CO2 successfully for more than 2 decades.
In 2010, Norway established a large-scale carbon capture demonstration facility (Technology Centre Mongstad - TCM). Several new well-stream and post-combustion capture technologies have emerged from this facility.
In February 2021, Norway progressed the Longship project; capturing CO2 from industrial sources and transport. The storage element, also known as Northern Lights, will be the world’s first open-source CO2 transport and storage infrastructure. Through these initiatives, various technologies/solutions have already emerged and ongoing R&D is high on the agenda.
