The European SiteChar project has developed and tested a methodology for the assessment of potential storage sites and the preparation of storage licence applications, incorporating all technical and economic data, as well as social aspects, on the basis of criteria defined by the relevant European legislation.

The final SiteChar Conference will provide an opportunity to discuss necessary activities to meet storage permit requirements with a morning session dedicated to site characterisation for storage permitting and an afternoon session dedicated to the proposed SiteChar Workflow for integrated and accountable site characterisation.

Outcomes and guidelines will be illustrated by the five potential European storage sites studied in SiteChar. Among others, discussions will address.

  • How to prioritise risk reduction and balance characterisation with costs?
  • What evidence is required to gain a storage permit?
  • What issues regarding storage permits still require clarity from the regulatory perspective?
  • What specific barriers to the site characterization methodology remain?
  • What should be the roles of operators and state authorities in supporting site characterisation?
