Published in: Regulatory and social analysis for the legitimation and market formation or carb, 64, 93, 9781845697976, Woodhead Publishing.

Deployment of CCS depends on regulatory and public perception issues as much as on technological developments. This chapter assesses, from an innovation system perspective, the technological, regulatory and social situation for CCS, and clarifies the current plans for regulation in various countries. Besides estimating the impact prospective regulation is likely to have on CCS implementation, this chapter reviews the experience in the social sciences with public perception of CCS. We conclude that legitimation and market formation of CCS, and to a lesser degree (and in some countries) institutions to influence direction of search and entrepreneurial experimentation would have to be further developed for CCS implementation. A global demonstration programme as well as guidelines for public engagement and communication would be instrumental in achieving this.
