ENOS in in the Netherlands

Development of CO2 storage projects in collaboration with  local communities

Local communities have a key role to play in the implementation of CO2 storage. 

ENOS has adopted an interactive approach to understand their concerns and the potential benefits of the technology at local level.

4 ENOS country teams (IT, UK, NL, ES) have worked together to develop a participatory research framework which would allow full expression of the citizens perspective.

The Dutch team performed extensive long term interaction with a group of citizens, collecting precious data on:

  • Ways to develop a collaborative relationship with the citizens
  • Societal requirements to be taken into account for CO2 storage implementation

The outcomes are available in the report: 

“CO2 Best Practices Indications from Rotterdam area community. Lessons Learned from a long term collaboration process with a group of Dutch citizens: towards societally embedded CO2 geological storage projects”
