04.10.2018 - New article in Environmental Science & Technology on the perspectives of an informed citizen panel on low-carbon electricity portfolios in Switzerland

The results from our research with the informed citizen panel (N = 46) on low-carbon electricity portfolios in Switzerland are now available in the Environmental Science and Technology journal. We created this panel using technology factsheets, an interactive web-tool Riskmeter, and group discussions and we measured the evolution of the panel’s knowledge and preferences. We found strong support for the low-carbon electricity sector transition, especially relying on hydropower, solar power, electricity savings and efficiency, and other renewable sources.
