PC3.1 and PC3.2: Social acceptance of hydrogen and alternative liquid fuels (H2&ALFs)
The social theme of UK-HyRES is driving research into the nature and antecedents of the social acceptance of H2&ALFs, among key societal actors (policy, public, stakeholder) operating at different societal levels (socio-political, community and household). Project PC3.1 comprises a national survey of lay-public attitudes towards H2&ALF technologies, while Project PC3.2 will focus on running a series of discussion groups with key policy, public and stakeholders. The lead for both projects is Dr Chris Jones, and the lead researcher will be a newly appointed research fellow. The projects will be run by the Technology Acceptance Research Group for Energy and Environmental Technologies (TARG:ET) in the Department of Psychology at the University of Portsmouth.
