Factors that influence willingness to participate in a community energy project

Over the course of 2018 this project will investigate a potential Community Renewable Energy project at Tamborine Mountain, a community in the Gold Coast Hinterland. Community energy initiatives are renewable energy projects with significant community participation and ownership.  The research will model a suitable renewable energy generation scheme and then evaluate factors that may influence a member of the community’s willingness to invest in the scheme.

This Master of Environment project is being undertaken by Richard Proudlove in 2018.
