Deliberating emission reduction options: identifying public perceptions to CCS using the Information Choice Questionnaire methodology
Deliberating emission reduction options: identifying public perceptions to CCS using the Information Choice Questionnaire methodology

1st June 2012

Topic(s): Public engagement, Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

The aim of this research was to develop an online decision guide to aid public awareness, knowledge, deliberation and choice around CCS compared with other greenhouse gas mitigation options. The research was an international collaboration between the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia and the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN).

The Australian results were similar to those found in the recent Dutch studies. Both countries show a preference for energy efficiency options and renewables, and oppose nuclear energy. Although the consequences of the different options for the Netherlands and Australia were quite different, the overall grades were similar in relative terms. The efficiency options, renewable sources and CCS score sufficient, while nuclear, coal to gas and the international trading scheme score insufficiently. From these results, a number of recommendations are derived for those attempting to improve understanding and perceptions around CCS and other low emissions technologies.

Rotterdam CCS Cluster Project. Case study on 'lessons learnt': final report
Rotterdam CCS Cluster Project. Case study on 'lessons learnt': final report

18th April 2012

Topic(s): Public engagement, Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

This report presents the results of the case study conducted to make explicit the history and lessons learnt of the Rotterdam CCS Cluster Project.

The Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) is in the process of realising CCS in the Rotterdam area, the Netherlands. CCS activities in Rotterdam commenced in 2006 and until now, 18 companies cooperated to provide feasibility-level engineering studies for CO2 capture projects and a CCS common infrastructure network. The Rotterdam CCS Network Project can be characterised by: 

  • a broad cooperation between parties, with active commitment of industrial organisations;
  • a vision that transcends single-source-single-sink projects and aims at a network, a hub function and focuses on the whole CCS chain of CCS; encompassing technology and organisational, legal and financial issues; and
  • a local (political) commitment to a long-term approach towards CCS deployment which transcends the region of Rotterdam.

The Rotterdam CCS Network project has experiences in a large number of fields that are considered highly relevant to other CCS projects. For example, use of goals and means, internal organisation, cooperation with industry, authorities and other stakeholders, technical, financial, legal and communication aspects, and lobbying.

Report on Japan CCS stakeholder day
Report on Japan CCS stakeholder day

15th June 2011

Topic(s): Public engagement, Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS)

Professor Joop van der Pligt from the University of Amsterdam provided a keynote address focusing on issues relating to risk and risk perception of the lay public in the face of uncertain technologies. Dr Kenshi Itaoka then presented an update on the local Japanese context for CCS based on results from his longitudinal research on public perception and awareness. Findings from a number of project case-studies were then presented for discussion, followed by a workshop on a Communications and Engagement Toolkit for CCS Projects.

Thematic analyses of the discussions that occurred over the course of the day revealed a number of considerations that were relevant to the theme of communication and public acceptance of CCS. The major themes included:

  • the importance of cultural identity and its influence on public acceptance in Japan;
  • issues relating to the different considerations for offshore and onshore storage particularly because of Japan’s potential for earthquakes;
  • considerations around the potential benefits that CCS projects may bring and whether there were any likely compensation models that may be applicable in the Japanese context;
  • the role of NGOs in Japan;
  • the importance of transparency of information that is communicated;
  • the value of case studies for knowledge sharing; and
  • the need for education materials and more consideration and priority to be given to developing a positive image for CCS.
