Social, political and commercial context for CCS deployment

  • Dialogue with stakeholders
  • Education and public engagement
  • Barriers and risk management
  • Policy recommendations

The aim is to develop an in-depth understanding of the social, political and commercial context for CCS deployment. This will include a review of best practice in education and public engagement, the international context, and risk and risk mitigation. It will also involve working with stakeholders to promote social acceptance; assessing readiness and the barriers to uptake; and making policy recommendations.


D4.3 Analysis of socio-political considerations of CCS

As part of the REALISE project, this report reviews: • the management of socio-political risks in carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects • policy and regulatory frameworks that enable or incentivise investment in CCS • financing options for CCS projects • CO2 capture technologies specifically relevant to refineries • barriers and policy considerations relevant to the transport and storage of CO2. The report also develops an indicator of the readiness of refineries for the application of CCS and applies it across European refineries.
