Danish CCS tender cancelled

Just days ahead of the prequalification deadline, the Danish Energy Agency cancels the carbon capture tender on the grounds that its present form made it impossible for several players to participate. The process will resume ”as soon as possible,” authorities say.

Since then, the end date has gradually slipped into 2026. Now the start date is being pushed as well after the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) has canceled the first Danish tender of carbon capture just three days ahead of the deadline.
