"Public Participation in the Clean Energy Transition"
The transition from a fossil-based to a renewables-based electricity system relies on active engagement with the public. As renewable energy continues to expand and the public becomes more aware of the downsides of fossil-based electricity, engagement on these issues is expanding. This volume of the US-German Clean Energy Leadership Series discusses the popular view of clean energy in these two countries and then explores approaches to how this opinion is being expressed through political and financial means.
