We are carrying out a series of studies looking at community perceptions of renewable energy technologies.

The link between natural environments and their restoration has been the focus of much research including its importance for human wellbeing. We are carrying out a series of studies looking at community perceptions of renewable energy technologies. One of these studies will look at the perceived restorative potential of an offshore windfarm using a virtual landscape theatre to examine the respondents’ environmental attitudes.

Identifying any relationships between environmental attitudes and support for such projects is complex due to the number of factors which may alter an individual’s perspective. A number of people however, do hold positive environmental associations with windfarms and virtual environments are an ideal method to ascertain people's feelings about proposed developments.
