Abstract [sv]

The dependency of fossil fuels has to decrease in order to reduce emissions of green house gases. Wind turbines generate electricity with low environmental impact, but the local opinion in Sweden is sometimes an obstacle to new developments. The acceptance of nuclear power increases at the same time. Mining uranium is once again on the agenda and prospectors are currently drilling for uranium. This cross-sectional study deals with acceptance of wind farms and uranium drilling. The aim was to describe the perception of the planed wind farm at Hedbodberget and the uranium drilling in the area among the residents of Dalfors, Dalarna. A questionnaire was answered by 61 persons (response rate: 91 %). The respondents had a negative attitude to the uranium drilling, but positive to the wind farm. Women were more negative to uranium drilling than men. Most respondents were positive to wind power on a general level (92 %) but less positive to nuclear power (44 %). Respondents who had attended the information meeting about the wind farm were more positive to the information provided by the local authorities and the developers than those who did not attend. Among respondents that attended the meeting about uranium drilling, 86 % had a negative attitude from the beginning compared to 51 % of those who did not attend the meeting. The information from the developers was rated negatively by 93 % of those who attended the meeting in comparison to 70 % who did not. The results indicate that people who have a negative attitude more often than others attend information meetings and that good information gives a more positive attitude to planned project.
