Call for Experts: Building momentum for the long-term CCS deployment in the CEE region

 

Context

The Building momentum for the long-term CCS deployment in the CEE region project, conducted under the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Regional Cooperation, aims to renew the discussion on the long-term deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies in the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region, leading to the new policies and joint projects. It is expected that building evidence-based consensus among key stakeholders will pave the way to implement concrete policies and ventures to facilitate the deployment of CCS in the region.

During the second phase of the project (Work Package 4), project partners are preparing national policy roadmaps for CCS deployment for the following countries: Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. The output of this work will provide input into the regional policy roadmap for CCS deployment in CEE and act as a baseline for the Work Package 5, i.e. supporting the implementation of the roadmaps through networking and capacity building events.

 

Description of the assignment

Energy Policy Group is looking for experts from Hungary to develop a national roadmap for CCS deployment in Hungary. In particular, experts would build on the national report on the context and opportunities for CCS in Hungary (an output of Work Package 3, which will be sent to selected experts upon confirmation of their assignment) and engage the relevant actors in order to build a roadmap of concrete actions to foster CCS deployment in Hungary.

The main tasks of the expert are as follows:

  • Develop the roadmap for CCS deployment in Hungary following guidance from Energy Policy Group;
  • Engage relevant stakeholders through interviews/bilateral meetings following guidance from Energy Policy Group;
  • Design and deliver a stakeholder workshop following guidance from Energy Policy Group;
  • Design and deliver a national seminar to disseminate the roadmap.

We are open to applications from individual people, groups of people as well as institutions – for collective applications, the overall experience in the CVs sent will be assessed. Please ensure that you include all experts who will be contributing to this task.

Each selected expert will receive a detailed template to fill in, which covers different aspects of the above tasks. The first draft of the expert’s inputs will be reviewed internally and the experts will be asked to provide a final draft based on feedback. The experts will actively participate in associated webinars and events, in addition to the stakeholder workshop and the national seminar. Moreover, each expert will be a national contact point for Energy Policy Group, WiseEuropa (the project coordinators) and Bellona Foundation (the expert partners).
