The Dutch general public’s opinion on CCS and energy transition in 2011: Development in awareness, knowledge, beliefs and opinions related to information and media coverage by Suzanne Brunsting

This report describes the results of two studies on public perceptions of CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in the Netherlands. These studies are based on the idea that to understand public concerns and predict their future opinion it is necessary to know how people arrive at their evaluations about CCS. Earlier research in CATO showed that the general public has little knowledge on CCS and therefore also use different information when forming an opinion on CCS than what is expected by CCS experts.
