Can he cast the above spell, as he can spend 10 energy per second (20 total at the end of the 2 seconds) for the duration of the spell's time to cast?

Does the answer change (and how?) if he uses ceremonial magic instead?

(I have an opinion of how this works, as the GM running the game for the player in question, but I'd like others opinions and ideas to make sure I'm interpreting it correctly.) :)
He needs to have all 20 EP available at the last second of casting, ceremonial magic or no. That said, unless he has limitations on his ER, he can combine them with his FP to get to 20 (unless you've decided that the setting prohibits that, of course).
