In 2020, 14% of total energy in the Netherlands should come from renewable energy sources. This requires development and implementation of diverse (new) renewable energy projects for delivering electricity as well as heat. To realise sustainable energy transition, it is important to understand which key factors influence public acceptability of sustainable energy projects and how these factors should be addressed in responsible decision-making. These questions are addressed in this project, in collaboration with the provinces of Groningen, Drenthe, and Friesland, and the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.
