Thematic report: Public engagement: Lessons learned in 2010
Thematic report: Public engagement: Lessons learned in 2010

9th May 2011

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

Using the structure of the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) best practice guide for Public Outreach and Education for Carbon Storage Projects, the Network members have jointly developed a record of their main communications activities and have also generated a series of lessons learned that can be summarised.

Results from Collie CCS Hub workshop: what do the locals think?
Results from Collie CCS Hub workshop: what do the locals think?

1st April 2011

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

The Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation’s (CSIRO) Science into Society Group, in conjunction with the Western Australia Department of Mines and Petroleum, conducted a workshop in Harvey, Western Australia in February 2011, supported by the Global CCS Institute. The aims of the workshop were to:

  1. assess the public’s knowledge and attitudes towards climate change science and low emissions energy technologies, particularly CCS;
  2. establish a framework for future public participation in studies and evaluation of the Collie Hub concept; and
  3. explore the effectiveness of a participatory one-day workshop process to enable more informed dialogue about the issues and risks regarding climate change science and energy technology options.

Information was presented on climate change and low emission energy sources and related technologies, followed by a presentation on CCS and the Collie Hub project. The workshop resulted in a number of significant improvements in participants’ self-rated knowledge of climate change and related issues. The vast majority of participants expressed agreement that climate change was an important issue to Australia.

The reports outline the process and information from the community consultation in Harvey and detail the Collie CCS Hub workshop results. A separate document outlines the questions (and answers) raised by the workshop attendees. These documents provide useful information for project proponents looking to undertake similar community consultation activities, and highlights some of the issues pertinent to the public within the CCS space.

Rotterdam CCS Network Project. Case study on 'lessons learnt': the methodology and plan of the research
Rotterdam CCS Network Project. Case study on 'lessons learnt': the methodology and plan of the research

1st March 2011

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

This report outlines the methodology used to capture the history and lessons learnt by the Rotterdam CCS Network Project.

The methodology report looks to achieve the following two objectives:

  1. to discover the lessons learnt from the Rotterdam CCS Network Project which may be useful to support development of CCS projects around the globe; and
  2. to improve delivery of the Rotterdam CCS Network Project by reviewing its own project development processes.

The Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) is in the process of realising CCS in the Rotterdam area of the Netherlands. As a major part of the initiative, CCS activities commenced in 2006 and to date more than 20 companies have cooperated to provide feasibility level engineering studies for CO2 capture projects and a common CO2 transport infrastructure network. The Rotterdam CCS Network Project can be characterised by:

  • a broad cooperation between parties, with the 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 experience in a large number of fields that are highly relevant to other CCS projects. These include: use of goals and means; internal organisation; co-operation with industry, authorities and other stakeholders; technical, financial, legal and communication aspects; and lobbying.

The management of public engagement at the local, state and federal levels for the Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center Project
The management of public engagement at the local, state and federal levels for the Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center Project

1st December 2010

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

The Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center (‘Trailblazer’ or ‘the Project’) is a cutting-edge coal-fueled electric generating plant currently under development just east of Sweetwater,Texas, United States of America (USA). It will be among the first such plants in the USA to include commercial-scale post-combustion carbon capture equipment in its initial design.

The Project will be among the cleanest coal-fueled power plants in the USA and will make a significant contribution toward efforts to curb carbon dioxide emissions. Over the past three years, the development team has made significant strides in educating the public and gaining support for this ground-breaking Project at the local, state and Federal level. This report discusses the steps Tenaska has taken to educate the public, inform them of the facts, and seek to gain support for the Project.

FutureGen case study
FutureGen case study

2nd November 2010

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

This report is one of a series of case study reports undertaken by CSIRO as part of an international comparison of communication and engagement practices surrounding carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) projects funded by the Global CCS Institute.

This case study is a retrospective view of the United State’s FutureGen project, which was initiated in 2006. FutureGen was created as a partnership between the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the FutureGen Alliance (Alliance) – a non-profit consortium of around a dozen coal companies and electric utilities with operations around the world. This report details the Alliance’s effort and the Illinois FutureGen Team’s community engagement activities and the perceived effectiveness of this engagement. The timeline is from July 2006, when the four semi-finalist sites were selected, through December 2007, when Mattoon, Illinois was selected as the final site, and ends one year later.

Communication, project planning and management for carbon capture and storage projects: an international comparison
Communication, project planning and management for carbon capture and storage projects: an international comparison

2nd November 2010

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

This report is an overview summary of a series of case study reports undertaken by the CSIRO as part of an international comparison of communication and engagement practices surrounding carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) projects funded by the Global CCS Institute.

This report provides an overview of the findings that have emerged from an international study comparing public communication and outreach practices associated with large scale carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) projects. The study focused on a direct comparison between five case studies of specific CCS projects and their associated communication and outreach activities. The five case studies were:

While there are key lessons around what constitutes best practice in communications and outreach, these alone are not sufficient to ensure successful CCS project deployment. The findings suggest that a project’s ability to adjust its planning and management to its social context is more likely to ensure a positive outcome for all involved in the project. A fundamental conclusion is that communication should not be seen as an add-on to the project. Successful projects integrate communication and outreach as a critical component of the project from the beginning.
