Energy: issues, options and technologies

Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


This report was produced by the European Opinion Research Group (EORG) on the basis of the results of a Eurobarometer survey for which about 16 000 citizens of the European Union (aged 15 and over) were interviewed. This survey is linked to the new Science and Society approach developed by Directorate-General for Research as a component of the European Research Area. The aim is to get a clearer picture of public opinion on energy-related issues, including their scientific, technological aspects and prospects for the future.

The report analyses the attitudes of the citizens of the European Union to energy issues, options and technologies. It is divided into several chapters covering:
- general perceptions of energy in the European Union;
- the structure of and trends in energy use;
- sources of information on energy;
- perceptions of energy in the future;
- priorities in the energy sector;
- individual behaviour and energy policies.
