This paper develops an interdisciplinary framework to assess the different dimensions of uncertainties which surround the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS). It includes technical, economic, financial, political and societal uncertainties about CCS and develops methods for assessing these uncertainties. It also identifies important linkages between uncertainties. This generic framework aims to help decision making on CCS by private and public actors. The paper is based on a systematic review of the social science literature on CCS and on broader insights from innovation studies.
