Abstract: Success of the German energy transition towards renewables relies not only on technical and economic factors, but also on the public acceptance of the required energy infrastructure, e.g., wind power plants and power lines. In this paper, acceptance-relevant process characteristics (perceived fairness of project planning, trust in stakeholders, and trust in technology) were investigated by comparing users’ acceptance for wind energy and power line planning, using an online survey in Germany (n = 70). Acceptance, trust, and perceived fairness were significantly higher for wind power plants than for electricity pylons. General acceptance of wind power plants and electricity pylons was affected by trust, with trust in technology playing a more important role than trust in stakeholders. Local acceptance was directly influenced by general acceptance and perceived fairness. Trust indirectly affected local acceptance through general acceptance. The results contribute to an improved planning of energy infrastructure by adequately addressing public requirements. (More)
