ABSTRACT

Recent research suggests that public opinion’s acknowledgment is a major obstacle in the way of renewable energy use. Renewable energy will be more preferred and available through social and individual perception and awareness-raising. However, first of all, it is necessary to identify the existing perception and demographical factors affecting it to achieve renewable energy perception. In this regard, perceptions of students studying at different departments of faculties and vocational schools at Süleyman Demirel University on renewable energy and the factors affecting their perceptions were studied. According to the research results, there was not a significant difference between students’ hometowns, parents’ occupations and renewable energy perception. However, there was a significant difference between parents’ educational background, monthly income and students’ renewable energy future tendency. Mother’s educational background was also effective on renewable energy future vision, and there was a significant difference between students’ faculties and renewable energy perception.
