Beyond political framework conditions, local acceptance of clean energy projects defines the future development of sustainable energy systems. For companies engaged in the renewable energy field the capability of managing acceptance risks is vital. The partnership between the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Murdoch University (Perth), EnergieSuedwest AG and Solarmatrix Ltd seeks further insights into the socio-technical systems of renewable energies by way of a comparative Australian-European study.
