Abstract

Within the scope of the NRP 70 project «ENERGYSCAPE», social preferences for landscape development with a combination of different infrastructures of renewable energy systems are systematically investigated in an online panel survey and a laboratory experiment. The preferences for the investigated landscape scenarios can be explained by the landscape and the perception of its structure, by physiological reactions to the scenarios as well as by connotations to the landscape and to renewable energy infrastructures. The results provide the basis for recommendations that can help to promote a socially accepted landscape development with renewable energy systems.
