Sanders, M.W.J.L. Bulavskaya, T. Wood, R. Faaij, A.P.C. van Vuuren, D.P. Publication year 2016 Abstract Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) could be an interesting option to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands. This study compares a mitigation strategy for the Dutch power sector that includes CCS to one without on several socio-economic indicators. In particular, we calculate incremental gross value added (GVA), employment and import dependency impacts of two such low-carbon power production portfolios for the Netherlands. We combine technology specific techno-economic bottom-up data with a macro-economic multi-regional Input-Output-Table containing high sectoral detail. For the total economy, we find the differences between these scenarios to be small. Still, gross value added, and employment are lower under the CCS-inclusive strategy, while import dependency is higher. For the power sector, the differences between the scenarios are, however, considerable. Furthermore, our analysis shows that also for other sectors the differences between the scenarios could be large. For instance, a CCS-exclusive strategy leads to considerably higher GVA and employment in domestic construction services, while the CCS-inclusive strategy comes with considerably higher GVA and employment for natural gas mining and related upstream sectors. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd Subject Urban Mobility & EnvironmentSBA - Strategic Business AnalysisELSS - Earth, Life and Social SciencesEnvironment & SustainabilityEnvironmentUrbanisationEmploymentJobsPower sectorNetherlandsCarbon Capture and Storage, CCSGross Value AddedEnergy securityTradeGreenhouse gas emission mitigation To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:e2a4580f-c465-4bd8-9899-6ddcc0e59653 DOI https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apenergy.2016.08.068 TNO identifier 573058 Publisher Elsevier Ltd ISSN 0306-2619 Source Applied Energy, 183, 257-277 Bibliographical note Funding Details: MOEA, Ministry of Economic Affairs Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
