A new global poll on renewable energy shows that the majority of people around the world are willing to pay more for renewable energy sources, despite some regional disparities.
Europeans had the lowest proportion of people willing to pay more, with a single vote of 0% YES and 100% NO. North Americans, Africans and Oceanians had not yet voted on the poll when the results were released.
In contrast, Asians had cast the most votes, with an overwhelming majority of 62.5% YES, 37.5% NO. This sentiment was echoed by the global result, which showed that 55.6% of people were in favour of paying more for renewable energy sources, while 44.4% were not.
The results of this poll suggest that people are beginning to recognize the value of renewable energy sources, and are willing to pay a premium to help the transition towards a more sustainable energy system.
