Energy Matters Launches Interactive Video Surveys on Renewable Energy Issues
Melbourne, Victoria, September 9 2008. Energy Matters (http://www.energymatters.com.au
), a leading provider of wind and solar power equipment and installation services, has launched the first in a series of interactive video surveys to gauge the Australian public's attitudes towards renewable energy issues.
In the first surveys, Energy Matters' Markus Lambert discusses feed in tariffs and solar power affordability in Australia. At specific points, viewers are asked to vote on how they feel about the topic and information presented by using a voting slider bar. On completion, viewers can compare their responses with those of other viewers. The surveys are anonymous and no personal data is gathered.
Mr. Lambert explains: "The goal of the surveys is to gather data directly from the Australian public as to not only their level of understanding of renewable energy, but also awareness and reactions to incentives available to switch to wind or solar power. We will then provide aggregate statistics to industry and government, to assist Government in formulating renewable energy policies.”
Australia's mandatory renewable energy target (MRET) is a 20% share for renewable energy in the nation's electricity supply by 2020, but the country is currently falling behind in meeting this goal.
Energy Matters believes in order for Australia to meet its MRET obligations, the Australian public needs far better and more easily accessible educational resources, plus a greater range of incentives for large scale renewable energy generation via solar and wind so that Australia can play their part in achieving reducing the dangers of climate change.
The first Energy Matters interactive video surveys can be accessed here:
