Public Engagement with CCS Report

Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) is anticipated to play an integral role in reducPublic engagementing carbon dioxide emissions in a number of countries, including the UK. There has been substantial investment in the technology by governments and industry worldwide. However, despite a growing awareness of the threats posed by climate change, CCS remains a relatively unknown and poorly understood technology among publics. This is problematic as experience from previous failed technology transfer efforts (e.g. GM food) suggest that public acceptance of CCS will be integral to its successful deployment.

What constitutes well-timed, well-placed and appropriate communication around CCS is, as yet, unclear. Although there is previous research into public engagement with and public perception of CCS, little is known about social, psychological, linguistic and geographic factors impacting on these processes. A workshop was held in May 2012 with the objective of starting to define a research agenda to understand these factors and the impact they have on public perception. The workshop brought together representatives from industry, NGO and government and academics to discuss the key social issues surrounding the development and deployment of CCS projects in the UK. The primary outcomes of this timely workshop are presented in this report which can be downloaded via the link below.
