Development of CO2 storage projects in collaboration with local communities – Contribution UK citizens
Report D5.5 “Questioning CCS: Developing Best Practice Public Engagement Guidelines”
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 UK 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
