Public Acceptance of Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage


The aim of this project is to study the factors deciding public acceptance and legitimacy in the placement of far-shore, near-shore, and on-shore CCUS and related infrastructure in Denmark. This analysis is done through surveys, focus group interviews, data collection, and the estimation of acceptance and preference relations for diverse types of CCUS technologies. This will contribute to a better understanding of the type of measures and processes that must be adopted, in order to secure acceptance of carbon storage, both in terms of choosing the right location, communicating effectively about risks and benefits, and by outlining optimal processes for citizen involvement to ensure legitimacy.
