PhD Project: Household Solar Power Policy
While some writers point to an imminent residential solar power revolution, others remind us that we are not there yet and that in the meantime policy makers control the mass adoption of rooftop solar power. Yet policy makers are influenced by their constituents and the interests of various groups. With a view to better understanding sustainable energy transitions, this PhD research explores how business and community organisations have sought to contribute to the development of residential solar power policy in Australia.
