Summary

In order to tackle environmental problems, a transition to more sustainable production and use of energy is inevitable. It is therefore important to understand key factors and processes that influence people’s evaluations and acceptability of energy sources, policies, and systems to realise a sustainable energy transition. The aim of this research project is to build and test theories on which factors and processes underlie acceptability of changes to realise a sustainable energy transition. This project zooms in on factors influencing public perceptions of risks associated with possible energy developments  and its relationship with acceptability of these energy developments.
