My research focuses on public acceptability of energy sources, systems, and policies. I study key factors and processes that influence people evaluations of various aspects of energy sources. I am especially interested in influencing public perceptions of risks associated with possible energy developments and its relationship with acceptability of these energy developments.
Public acceptability of 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 what drives public acceptability of sustainable energy transitions, including energy sources and technology, changes in energy-related behaviours, and energy policies.
