Survey of British adults on behalf of Remsol into public opinion on proposed community benefits associated with major local energy developments
- Of the energy developments tested, nuclear and shale are least popular; solar and onshore wind are most popular.
- If a major energy development were to offer community benefits, reducing energy bills for local residents is by far the benefit of most interest to Britons, and the benefit that is most likely to be cited as important to Britons personally.
- All impacts of the proposed initiative that were tested are rated as important by the majority of Britons.
