Annual consumer barometer of renewable energy.
The Consumer Barometer provides insights into what Swiss people think about renewable energy, about how they use these technologies at home and about how they perceive the role of business and politics in the energy transition. Published annually since 2011 and based on a representative sample of more than 1,000 respondents, the study also shows how the sentiment of the population changes over the years. This project aims at developing financing solutions for renewables that match consumer preferences, and at advising policy makers on strategies finding a majority.
