When it comes to the deployment of low-carbon infrastructures and policies, social acceptance remains a key bottleneck. Procedural and distributional justice have been identified as key success factors, but there are also important emotional influences. Furthermore, stakeholder preferences are becoming increasingly volatile, pointing to the fact that social acceptance is a dynamic process. This webinar will review best practice examples and identify remaining open issues, sharing insights from practitioners and the H2020 projects MISTRAL and E-LAND. A particular focus is on Austria, which aims at 100% renewable electricity by 2030, and Switzerland, where the recent vote on the CO2 law has revealed some of the challenges in the dynamics of social acceptance.
