Cultural Acceptance Differences of Renewable Energy Technologies

Ignas Mikalauskas and Asta Mikalauskienė
Abstract—21st century life without the common technologies, such as a computer, mobile phone, automobile and others, is no longer imaginable. The invention, adaptation and mass production of these new technologies is a key and essential to further human development and survival on earth. Renewable energy technologies have been developed in order to have a sustainable, clean future with limitless energy source. All of the past, present and future technologies are not linear in time when it comes to reaching different cultures and societies. Some of the cultures receive these new renewable energy technologies in a very much different order therefore there is a great change in how these cultures and societies perceive and accept the changes in their common day lives. This paper focuses on identifying and presenting the cultural acceptance differences that occur in different societies within the area of renewable energy technologies studies.

Index Terms—Cultural social differences, social acceptance, renewable energy technologies.
