Resumé

This paper documents very different attitudes towards planned local renewable energy technology (RET) projects in Denmark among two identified key local project stakeholder groups, permanent area residents (PRs) and second home owners (SHOs). It does so via survey data from almost 2000 respondents collected during the 2015-2016 Danish near-shore wind farm tender. Firstly, judging by this research data local PRs are positive towards the planned local RETs, while SHOs are less so. This emphasizes that potential RET project stakeholders and stakeholder groups may have very different project perceptions and opinions. Secondly, the documented PR RET project support was rather silent support, and the project critique received most of the attention in the wider public and political RET project related debate. This is a noteworthy inconsistency calling for further research. The research findings have significant implications for RET related planning, practice and policy more broadly. Moreover, drawing upon research insights from the interdisciplinary socially focused energy transitions body of literature, the paper suggests that particular uses of, and therefore perhaps particular attachments to, particular places may inform stakeholder perceptions of RET related local change.
