Workshop on public acceptance and communication for CCS
The workshop held on November 15th was a joint effort between two ACT 3 projects: ENSURE - Effective monitoring of long-term site stability for transparent carbon capture and storage hazard assessment, and SHARP - Storage - Stress history and reservoir pressure for improved quantification of CO2 storage containment risks.
The main purpose of this workshop was two-fold:
- Inform on results of a large-scale public CCS perception survey and economic experiment conducted in 5 countries (Norway, Germany, Netherlands, UK,
- Get input for developing effective communication strategies around CO2 sequestration for diverse target audiences in member countries.
