Abstract
CCS is considered a transition measure to a completely sustainable energy regime. Nonetheless, in recent years, several projects have been cancelled or postponed. This raises some questions about temporal issues. This study defines temporal features (i.e. frame, timing, tempo, and duration) for policy making and deployment of large-scale CCS projects. According to this study, it appears that CCS deployment is lagging behind due to institutional inertia and poor temporal fit. Thus, unless significant progress is made in a very few years, CCS will lose ground to other alternatives. Timing should be taken into consideration in every matter of CCS.
