These resources provide you with information about previous experiences in managing (or failing to manage) the societal acceptance of new energy projects. Previous experiences are also summarized in the report Factors influencing the societal acceptance of new energy technologies: Meta-analysis of recent European projects. The report is based on 27 case studies, which are sorted into different categories by technology, location, initiators and successfulness (see the links on the right side of this webpage). We also provide links to the parts of the report dealing with these particular issues.
Explore resources on the following questions:
- What specific societal acceptance issues relate to different new energy technologies (e.g., wind, solar, hydrogen?)
- How does national and local context influence societal acceptance?
- What managerial challenges do different types of project initiators (e.g., business ventures vs. citizen projects) encounter?
- What can be learned from successful and unsuccessful previous projects?
