Improving energy security in Ukraine and Estonia
March 29, 2018 @ 4:30 pm
Based on a large-scale survey and a choice experiment, this presentation will discuss energy-related preferences and climate change beliefs in Southern Ukraine and Western Estonia. Special attention will be given to the issues of social acceptance of large wind energy projects, since the surveyed regions have a high potential for wind power development.Dr. Anna Ebers Broughel is a visiting research fellow at the School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, College Park, where she works at the Center for Global Sustainability.

Her other engagements included an international cooperation project with the universities from Ukraine, Switzerland, and Estonia to improve energy security in Eastern Europe.
