Community Renewable Energy Survey
This form consists of 10 questions to help inform academic research into the possibility of developing a small renewable energy scheme in your community. All data will be completely anonymous but will be analysed with other responses from people in your area. Data will be used to help fulfil part of a Masters Dissertation and the results shared by your community will be fed back to help your leaders understand people's views on a potential scheme and what resources might be available. All participation is voluntary, and you can withdraw your contributions at any time but completing the form will assume your consent to have your data used in this way. A full information sheet can be viewed here:

1) Do you believe there is a Climate Change Crisis?

2) Renewable Energy is any energy source that does not reduce the ability for that same resource to be used in the future. Examples include Solar Panels, Wind Turbines and Hydroelectric Dams. To what extent would you be interested in a renewable energy scheme in your community?
Completley Uninterested
Highly Interested
Clear selection
3) This project is examining the potential to develop a small-scale hydropower scheme to generate energy from the flow of a river or reservoir. To what extent would you be interested in a small hydro power scheme in your area?
Completley Uninterested
Highly Interested
Clear selection
4) In other parts of Scotland and the rest of the UK it's becoming common for renewable energy schemes to be developed, run and owned by local communities rather than by a private individual or company. To what extent would you be interested in a community run, small hydro power scheme in your area?
Completley Uninterested
Highly Interested
Clear selection
5) If you are in favour of such a project would you be willing to contribute to its development? Please tick all that apply.
6) Can you think of any reasons why your community would be particularly well suited for a small hydro power scheme? (Examples might include natural landscape features, the social structure of your community, availability of resources or personal attributes and skill sets).
7) Can you think of any reasons why your community would be particularly poorly suited for a small hydro power scheme? (Examples might include a lack of appropriate sites, landownership conflicts, the social structure of your community, or a general lack of interest).
8) What challenges do you think any community seeking to develop a community led renewable energy scheme would have to overcome? (Examples might including funding, administration/organisation/ or problems with legislation)
9) Other renewable energy in similar communities have resulted in financial investment, full-time jobs, reduced energy bills, lower carbon footprints as well as serving as an educational tool for communities as a whole. What benefits would you most want to see from renewable energy in your community?
10) If a renewable energy scheme were to be developed in your area how frequently would you like to be contacted by your community leaders for updates and outreach to consider your opinions?
