Attitudes toward green hydrogen. Results of a representative survey and stakeholder interviews

What do citizens, decision-makers and stakeholder think about the operation of a green hydrogen plant in their community? DIALOGIK researchers investigated this topic in a representative survey and in stakeholder interviews in the southwestern German community of Grenzach-Wyhlen. The aim was to determine the level of awareness and knowledge of both the population and representatives from politics and administration, business and civil society about (green) hydrogen and its applications. Furthermore, it was investigated which effects they expect for their community as a location for the production and use of green hydrogen.

As a result, the respondents associate hydrogen with clearly optimistic expectations, for example with regard to climate and environmental protection and the local economy, but at the same time they are sensitive to perceived risks as well as impairments of local recreational areas or urban traffic by load transport.
