The expansion of renewable energies (RE) is associated with far-reaching changes in the energy system and means a significant intervention in the usual living environment at the local level. In order to avoid possible conflicts and resistance to the expansion of renewable energies and to increase the acceptance of the residents, it is important to involve the citizens. There are still knowledge deficits, especially with regard to the connection between different models of financial participation, regional added value and acceptance. Steven Salecki presented the first results from the ReWA project, which point to the important role of economic participation and its respective design.
