Abstract/Summary Extensive investment into research and development of low emission coal technologies is occurring around the globe. However, surveys suggest that most members of the general public are unaware of advanced coal technologies like carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS). Further, those people who are aware of the term tend to have little understanding of the concept. This lack of awareness has become an increasing focus of policy makers internationally, and a number of governments have developed communication strategies to raise awareness of CCS and other low emission coal technologies and to help promote social acceptance of these technologies. The present research synthesizes the range of communication activities that have been planned or implemented since 2002 in Australia and internationally, and examines the strengths and weaknesses of these activities. The resulting "roadmap" enables interested parties to draw from the best communication processes available, to help increase capability in this area for the ultimate successful deployment of CCS. The paper makes a number of recommendations for industry and policy makers to provide a guide for future communication strategies regarding CCS.
