Acceptance of renewable energies in the USA

This report deals with the acceptance of renewable energies in the USA and takes a deeper look into the approval of offshore wind energy projects. The report is based on 23 interviews with US citizens who are experts for renewable energies and/or work in the field of energy policy. The interviews were led in April/May 2008 during a McCloy fellowship on environmental affairs granted by the American Council on Germany.
