Abstract
European power generators are facing a powerful suite of drivers to engage in carbon capture and storage (CCS). However, the future for CCS is uncertain. The type and level of engagement will depend on how CCS develops. This work, based heavily on primary data, collected thoughts and opinions of 37 stakeholders in Northern Europe in the CCS field today encompassing power companies, NGOs, academics, and governments. This work explored attributes of power, legitimacy, and urgency on achieving the commercial applications of CCS technologies held by these stakeholders, and gained insights from their thoughts on the CCS field. The end result of the insights gained, alongside an understanding of stakeholder relationships with achieving the... (More)
European power generators are facing a powerful suite of drivers to engage in carbon capture and storage (CCS). However, the future for CCS is uncertain. The type and level of engagement will depend on how CCS develops. This work, based heavily on primary data, collected thoughts and opinions of 37 stakeholders in Northern Europe in the CCS field today encompassing power companies, NGOs, academics, and governments. This work explored attributes of power, legitimacy, and urgency on achieving the commercial applications of CCS technologies held by these stakeholders, and gained insights from their thoughts on the CCS field. The end result of the insights gained, alongside an understanding of stakeholder relationships with achieving the commercial application of CCS technology, are three development paths for CCS. These three storylines describe a “fast”, “slow”, and “failed” commercialization of CCS technologies. This work can be built upon for use as a decision making tool by stakeholders involved in CCS to aid in understanding how to act today based on how the future may look. Strategizing in this dynamic manner can help to understand the possible ways in which stakeholders can affect or be affected by the potential development paths of CCS, one of which is the commercial applications of the technology.
