Webinar: Public Perception and Social Acceptance of Power-To-X Technologies
At DBI, we work to promote fire safety in PtX. Here, human factors and the social acceptance of technologies inevitably play a pivotal part. DBI has therefore explored the public perception and social acceptance of PtX to shed more nuances on safety concerns and perceptions of different local populations. We have conducted literature studies, collaborated with universities, and carried out ethnographic fieldwork in the local areas in Denmark where PtX technologies and facilities are either implemented or on their way to it.
You can hear about the results of these studies and collaborations at our webinar:
Date: 1 December
Time: 10:00 – 11:00
Platform: Adobe Connect (the link will be sent to you the day before the webinar)
The webinar is free and is held in collaboration with Energy Cluster Denmark. The webinar will be conducted in English and is recorded, so you can watch it at a time that suits you better.
Power-to-X (PtX) is often mentioned when talking about common visions for a future moving away from fossil fuels. The development of PtX requires technological knowledge and development – but this development goes hand in hand with local acceptance and engagement from the population and local communities. The technology itself cannot go very far if, e.g. wind turbine projects continue to be stopped by resistance or local concerns. It is therefore important to investigate whether people feel safe around the implementation and use of hydrogen, ammonia, or methanol as fuel.
