The aim of the ACCSEPT project is to contribute to the timely and responsible application of CO2 capture and storage (CCS) by measuring EU social acceptance of CCS; assisting with the establishment of CCS guidelines for the EU ETS; and by identifying and addressing gaps in existing socio-economic studies.
The ACCSEPT project will achieve these objectives through:
- A process of measurable, phased, and focused stakeholder engagement.
- The project team's own expert evaluations based upon its current comprehensive knowledge base of CCS and understanding of the key knowledge gaps for EU-level policy making in this area.
- A process for filling in gaps in overall CCS knowledge.
- Production of targeted recommendations that will make outputs of the project useful for solving difficult CCS challenges.
Our team represents an array of expertise:
-DNV is a global certifier within a broad range of industrial activities and standards, and is a world leader in verification for GHG emissions trading schemes. DNV conducts R&D in CCS and sustainable energy at its strategic research centre.
-Baker & McKenzie is a leader in environmental law and one of the world's experts on legal issues related to emissions trading and has been invaluable in the development of several trading systems.
-ECN is a research institution with technological expertise on CCS and technical experts in economic and policy aspects of GHG mitigation.
-IEEP focuses on the implementation of European regulations and is an independent non-profit institute and has close relationships with a range of stakeholders whom it regularly consults.
-Tyndall Centre is one of the world's leading research centres on climate issues, spanning activities from predictive climate modelling to social science studies.
