Abstract

The UK CCS Research Centre (www.ukccsrc.ac.uk) has undertaken a wide range of communication activities with diverse groups of stakeholders during the current phase of UK CCS deployment, which started in January 2016 following the cancellation of funding for the second UK CCUS Competition (the Peterhead and White Rose projects) and has now expanded to around seven active or emerging CCS clusters. These have included physical meetings organised by the Centre (most of which are open to anyone to attend and always without charge), providing speakers for physical meetings organised by others and, particularly after the start of the COVID-19 epidemic in 2020, web events, workshops and social media communications with a very large potential audience. These are underpinned by the use of the website and a monthly newsletter sent to registered subscribers. Examples and analysis of different modes and stages of communication are given.
