Research overview

Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) has the largest potential for wind energy in the Canada, with the ability to produce much more energy than the province’s own needs but has limited development. In contrast, Scotland aims to produce 100% of its annual electricity consumption from renewables by 2020, much of which is produced from wind energy. Moreover, Scotland provides an interesting and potentially useful model to explore how community-based wind energy encourages societal acceptance. Jessica's research aims to use Scotland as a model to provide an adapted framework for wind energy development suitable for NL. To investigate her research questions, she intends to compare and contrast policy, economic insecurities and incentives, and fossil fuel dependence, alongside an investigation of public values, norms, and acceptance of renewables in Scotland and NL.
