Investigation of public attitude towards renewable energy sources using word association method in Hungarian settlements
In the framework of a questionnaire survey an attitude examination was conducted among inhabitants of 3-3 settlements of Hajdú-Bihar and Heves county in connection with the renewable energy sources. With the help of the word-association method authors tried to assess whether the population of the examined settlements is aware of the meaning of the renewable energy sources and its utilisation opportunities. Authors tried to determine the attitude of the inhabitants to the renewable energy sources. It turned out that the conceptual picture of the inhabitants about the renewable energy sources is quite superficial, but at the same time their attitude unambiguously positive. It turned out, that the inhabitants with higher educational level and the younger people have the most accurate knowledge about the renewable energy sources.
