The adoption of CCS depends on many societal issues beyond technological and economic viability. This paper maps these issues based on multiple data sets from two research projects in Finland, looking at social, cultural, and political issues. The analysis takes advantage of various data sets collected within the projects, including interview data, media corpuses, stakeholder workshop materials, and secondary survey data. The goal is to explain the social and political support systems that CCS requires to fit the energy systems and the society at large. The result is a socio-ecological systems mapping that should provide CCS projects and policy-makers a tool for revealing the potential pitfalls in a range of societies.
