Public perceptions of low carbon energy technologies: results from a Scottish large group process
Public perceptions of low carbon energy technologies: results from a Scottish large group process

1st April 2012

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

This report describes the outcomes of a large group process workshop held in Edinburgh, Scotland on 24 September 2011. The one-day workshop was designed to investigate Scottish citizens’ perspectives on climate change and low-carbon energy technologies, with a particular focus on carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS). The report presents the large group process methodology and the results, both from questionnaire answers and discussions during the workshop. The key findings of the report reflect a mixed range of public opinions with regard to climate change, low-carbon energy and CCS.

The study, commissioned on behalf of the Global CCS Institute by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia, replicates a number of large group process workshops held in Australia by CSIRO.

Public perceptions of low carbon energy technologies: Results from a Dutch large group workshop
Public perceptions of low carbon energy technologies: Results from a Dutch large group workshop

1st June 2011

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

The overall Large Group Process project encompasses workshops from Canada, Netherlands and Scotland, and some of the learnings from similar Australian workshops. The project is designed to identify public perceptions, acceptance of CCS in relation to other energy technologies; determine demographic, psychological, and environmental influencers to accepting CCS and record results into a report, comparing similarities and differences across countries. This report reflects the Dutch citizens’ perspectives on climate change and low emission energy technologies and how these perspectives may have changed after receiving and discussing objective information. The report present participants’ environmental profile, stated beliefs, knowledge and attitudes, support for different energy technologies, and environmental behaviours and intentions, derived from questionnaire answers and observations during the workshop. The report also presents observed changes on the above over the course of the workshop.  To enable comparison of the outcomes, the study’s methodological set up and analysis, as well as the structure of the reports, resembles the Large Group Process approach developed by CSIRO. The methodology for the research is described, and the results presented based on quantitative and qualitative data sources, and provide an analysis and conclusions.
