"Not in My Backyard, but Not Far Away from Me: Local Acceptance of Wind Power in China"

Journal Article, Energy, volume 82

By Yue Guo, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Project on Managing the Atom, Peng Ru, Former Research Fellow, Energy Technology Policy Innovation Research Group/Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program, 2007–2008, Jun Su, Former Research Fellow, Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program, 2001–2002 and Laura Diaz Anadon, Assistant Professor of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School; Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs

Local acceptance of wind energy technology has become an important factor to consider when designing local and national wind energy technological innovation policies. Previous studies have investigated the factors that shape the local acceptance of wind power in high-income countries. However, to the best of the authors' knowledge, these factors had not been investigated in China. Utilizing a survey and quantitative analysis, the authors have identified the factors that are correlated with local acceptance of wind power in China.
