New YouGov polling commissioned by the European Climate Foundation has revealed massive public support for new wind and solar power projects.

Previous polling has consistently shown wide public support for wind and solar, but this new data underlines that Europeans not only want a lot more renewable energy, but they also want greater control over it at the local level, and when they are exposed to renewable energy in their communities, they become even more supportive of it.

Across Europe, 86% of people questioned said they would support new wind and solar projects near to where they live. They also expressed a strong interest in joining a local energy cooperative and supported government measures to accelerate the rollout of wind and solar power.
