Die Schweiz hat sich ambitionierte Ziele in der Energiepolitik gesetzt. Die Energiewende ist dabei eine treibende Kraft für erneuerbare Energieprojekte. Die Steigerung des Anteils erneuerbarer Energien am Strommix gilt als unabdingbar für die Lösung des Stromversorgungsproblems. Die Neuausrichtung in der Schweizer Energiepolitik bringt zahlreiche Herausforderungen auf technischer wie politischer Ebene mit sich. Um Veränderungen erzielen zu können, müssen Projekte und innovative politische Instrumente sowohl bei der politischen Elite als auch in der Bevölkerung Akzeptanz finden.
Das Projekt «Akzeptanz erneuerbarer Energie», welches im Rahmen des Nationalen Forschungsprogramms 71 «Steuerung des Energieverbrauchs» (NFP 71) des Schweizerischen Nationalfonds (SNF) finanziert und umgesetzt wurde, hat die aktuelle Debatte über die Erreichung der Ziele in der Energiepolitik aufgenommen und hat die Chancen und Herausforderungen untersucht, die sich beim Ausbau der erneuerbaren Energien im Rahmen der Energiestrategie 2050 des Bundes ergeben.
