Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS) standpoint survey

This survey is being conducted by Chatham House in collaboration with Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Global Strategic Communications Council (GSCC). The research will explore scientific, civil society and policy debate around the potential role of BECCS in mitigating climate change. Throughout this survey the authors mainly want views on BECCS-to-power, rather than BECCS-to-hydrogen, or other alternatives. But you are free to provide comments in relation to other forms of BECCS.
