Acceptability of gas as a future energy source

Social Psychology

This project aims to study factors influencing the acceptability of gas in future energy systems. Among others, we consider the perceived advantages and disadvantages of gas now and in the future, and trust in gas production companies. The project is funded by the Top Consortium for Knowledge and Innovation on Gas (TKI Gas) and the Dutch natural gas infrastructure and transportation company Gasunie.

Main project

This project is part of project "Acceptability of a sustainable energy transition".
