The Communication Science department is involved in several research projects regarding the energy transition, including:

  • How to involve citizens and communicate about the transition towards sustainable heating (Aardgasvrij) in the Netherlands;
  • Citizens' perceptions and experiences of local renewable energy projects (i.e., wind turbines, solar farms, and manure digesters);
  • Framing the energy transition: the influence of gain and loss frames on the attitude and acceptance of energy projects.
