ABSTRACT
The article discusses the results of the 2013 study "Transforming the UK Energy System--Public Values, Attitudes and Acceptability," funded by the United Kingdom Energy Research Centre (UKRC). The study showed public support for move to an efficient, clean, fair and safe energy system. Lead researcher Nick Pidgeon noted the commitment to move away from fossil fuels towards renewable forms of energy production and to reduce energy demand.
