The paper analyses the impact that European Union citizens’ access to information on climate change has on their awareness of carbon capture and storage (CCS), perceived risks and benefits of using CCS and stated choice of preferred CCS options. We use Eurobarometer data about awareness/acceptance of CCS and run structural equation models for twelve EU countries with an average sample size of 1100 observations per country. Results between the different countries are comparable and, alongside other determinants, access to information sources significantly impacts CCS awareness, perceived risks and benefits of CCS and preferences towards options of CCS.
