8 Projections for GHG emissions from electricity generation (kt CO 2 eq) CO2eq CO2 CH4 N2O The average annual increase rates of GHG emissions decreases to 1.0% up to 2010 and to 0.8% in the following period due to further penetration of natural gas, RES in the power sector and as a result of refurbishment of some old lignite-fired power units
9 Εθνικό Κέντρο Έρευνας και Τεχνολογικής Ανάπτυξης / National Commitments under the Kyoto Protocol On Greece ratified the Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change (Law 3017/2002). Under the European Union (EU) Burden Sharing Agreement to the Kyoto Protocol,, the government agreed to limit the net increase in GHG emissions to 25% compared to base year emissions (1990 for CO2, CH4 and N2O emissions 1995 for F - gases) the period In order to ensure compliance with Kyoto target Greece developed and adopted in 2002 the National Plan on Climate Change ( ). 2010). Climate Change Abatement is one of the main targets of the National Strategy for Sustainable Development launched by The Ministry for the Environment, Physical Planning and Public Works launched in Action tions s and measures: Reform and diversification of energy supplies Efficient use and conservation of energy Measures for the reduction of other greenhouse gases Institutional framework reforming
10 National Climate Change Programme ( ) 2010) The further development of infrastructure for enhancing the penetration of natural gas into the Greek energy sector and the formulation of supporting policies for the further expoitation of Renewable Energy Sources(RES) ) are the major axes of the national energy policy in the 2 nd National Programme. Definition of additional domestic policies and measures (planned) required for Greece to meet it s Kyoto target: further penetration of natural gas in power generation and in all final demand sectors including cogeneration.. Operation of natural-gas power plants as base load units in the national electricity grid. promotion of renewable energy sources for electricity generation and heat production energy conservation in the industrial, tertiary and residential sectors promotion of energy-efficient efficient appliances in tertiary and residential sectors structural changes in agriculture and chemical industries transport and waste management options.

15 Second in the range is the wide basin of Attica. In this region except the two PPC s power plants, big cement plants and the biggest refineries of Hellenic Petroleum and Motor Oil in Greece are located. The amount of the CO2 emissions in this region is about 10,241 kt per year generated only by the industry sector. The rest of regions emit smaller amounts of CO2, like Evia near Attica with 4,120 kt, Volos in the prefecture of Magnisia with 2,800 kt and the basin of Thessaloniki in north Greece with 1,171 kt per year.

17 CO2 emissions and CCS potential in Greece GESTCO PROJECT Oil field (10 6 t CO2) Total storage capacity (10 6 t CO2) Annual point source CO2 emissions (10 6 t CO2) Number of years storage capacity from current point sources (approx.) The approximate number of years storage capacity is based on 1.3 times the current emissions because extra CO2 will be generated by the capture process.
18 CO2 emissions and CCS potential in Greece Furthermore, the offshore oil field in the Katakolon area and the onshore gas field in Epanomi area are proven deposits that have not yet been developed. Therefore, these fields could also be considered as prospective areas for CO2 underground storage in the long term. In addition there are considerable prospects for hydrocarbon reserves erves in Western Greece based on a tectonic connection between the proven fields in neighbouring countries around Greece (Albania) and the potential of the explored areas in Greece (significant gas potential tial in the Mesohellenic basin).

20 Mesohellenic Trough Basal clastic sequences This Tertiary basin hosts thick sequences of conglomerates and sandstones, which seem to provide the necessary space and seal in order to store significant quantities of CO2. Many of the turbidite sandstones have about 15% porosity, reaching 25% in some samples. Interbedded shales provide potential topseals. Main challenge: Its proximity to the the Kozani Ptolemais lignite-fired power stations The Tertiary Thessaloniki basin contains thick sequences of sediments with the adequate volume to store big quantities of CO2 from the nearby-located sources (refineries, fertilizers and cement plants).

30 A relevant questionnaire was designed and sent to FENCO-ERA ERA partners and to the remainder of the EU 25. Based on the completed questionnaires an Access database was established containing information and best practice on: Programme technology focus, drivers, research priorities. Programme design and management. The database will be further developed and continuously updated with additional information in order to best identify countries with common interests and priorities. Additional information will be gathered on Programmes activities outside of EU 25. A preliminary Assessment of the data gathered was undertaken related to Programme drivers and aspirations with the objective of identifying potential tial areas for collaboration.
31 Α Model of Cooperation for use in joint research activities was presented by WP4 in the Workshop < Procedure and Theme Finding Laboratory >, held in Vienna in April Based on: The best practice schemes derived from the experiences from other r ERA-NETs reports The answers gathered in the FENCO-ERA ERA Database concerning the different practices that are presently being used by the national funding organizations ons The discussions that took place during the sessions organised in Vienna s Workshop concerning the FENCO-ERA ERA Common call procedure and Themes for quick start opportunities leading to common calls and activities the required documentation is currently prepared for the launch of the first FENCO- ERA joint call (early 2008)
32 FENCO CA Progress The Call Notice, National Annexes, Application Forms and other call c documents are published on the FENCO-ERA ERA website (http://www.fenco( era.net) ) or in the websites of the partners. Within WP 5 a further evaluation related to the quality and the flexibility of the gathered information is carried out in order to assure the effective merging of national programmes into joint trans-national national R&D pilots in the area of Clean Fossil Fuels. The experience gained from the execution of these joint research activities will be the basis for the formulation of a long lasting co-operation operation framework, contributing to the European Fossil Energy Research Area A after this project is completed.
33 Conclusions & Discussion (1) The Greek energy sector is characterized by a high degree of energy imports dependency due to limited primary energy sources- apart from lignite. Fossil fuels will continue to be an important part of the national energy mix during the following decades. RES will play an increasing role in the power generation. Need to meet the growing demand for electricity under climate change constraints. The security of energy supply is achieved by the greater exploitation of RES and the diversification of supply of imported energy (natural gas). The introduced market-based mechanism ETS encourage investments in more efficient technologies or the use e of a less carbon-intensive energy source. The Greek NAP for the period allocated to power sector 156 Mt CO 2, resulting in a net demand for 11 Mt allowances, according to the BAU scenario.
34 CO2 emissions and CCS potential in Greece Conclusions & Discussion (2) The implementation of domestic implemented, adopted policies and d measures as well as of the additional measures included in the 2 nd National Climate Change Programme will enable Greece to reach its Kyoto Protocol target for the 1 st Commitment Period. The National R&D priorities are mainly focused on: Renewable Energy Sources,, higher Efficiency Conversion processes, Fuel Switching to lower carbon alternatives and Combined heat and power (CHP) applications In order to achieve in the medium to long term a sustainable power sector CCS and clean coal technologies s should be included in the national R&D portfolio. This complementary option will enable Greece to continue the use e of domestic lignite reserves as a secure and competitive energy source. Greece appears to have a potential storage capacity in hydrocarbon on fields and saline aquifers which probably may increase in the future if exploratory y drillings reach greater depths.
35 Conclusions & Discussion (3) A range of research activities is required in order to assess the storage potential s availability with a higher degree of certainty in combination with each of the large point sources in Greece. Thus, the specific conditions of potential storage sites might be determined by a more detailed evaluation of geological, geochemical and reservoir engineering data. Within EU GEOCAPACITY Project a further detailed assessment of the national potential will be conducted since a priority is the further development of innovative methods for capacity assessment, economic modelling and site selection criteria. Considerable sequestration potential of ultramafic rocks exists in Western Macedonia, well-known geology of Vourinos Complex, significant distribution and volume of Mg-rich rocks. Proximity of the mineral deposits to large CO2 sources. Need for more detailed mapping and evaluation of the magnesium silicate mineral resources.
