    How Will Carbon Markets Evolve?

    Carbon Management/Decarbonization

    COP28 failed to deliver the expected progress on Article 6, which is meant to support the development of global carbon markets. Consequently, the voluntary carbon market is regrouping around the question of quality, which has been impacting issuances, retirements and price trends. Will the sector be able to regain momentum? Simultaneously, national carbon compliance programs are being developed in key countries of the Global South, even as more established carbon markets are being strengthened and projected across borders. Will these different trends and markets converge? Can COP29 deliver progress for carbon markets?

    European Low-Carbon Energy Hubs: Progress & learnings

    Carbon Management/Decarbonization

    Low-carbon energy hub projects are progressing in several European countries. Projects have developed into execution stages with contracts being put in place for capturing CO2 and its transport/shipping and storage elements. The Net Zero Industry Act and the proposal for the first-ever mandate to store CO2 in Europe should further reduce uncertainties around the infrastructure needed for CO2 transport and storage and provide a positive signal to the global CCUS market. Will the new regulation accelerate the growth of low-carbon energy hubs and what will be the implications for the industry? What have the learnings been for getting these complex projects moving? How do approaches differ across the countries involved? What has it taken to remove obstacles or to adapt plans to meet new project delivery challenges as they arise?
