-The increase of social acceptance after 10 years of wind energy development is quite an unexpected outcome considering that numerous literature has argued that negative experiences over time, such as landscape degradation or physical disturbance, have worsened social acceptance (Huesca al. 2016).+The increase of social acceptance after 10 years of wind energy development is quite an unexpected outcome considering that numerous literature has argued that negative experiences over time, such as landscape degradation or physical disturbance, have worsened social acceptance (Huesca et al. 2016).
  
 Increased awareness of the necessity and importance of wind energy can be one explanation, and according both to our survey and relevant literature, this seems to result in  strong public support (Petrova, 2016). Same results can be found from several other positive changes in the answers of respondents over time, not only from the social acceptance indicators. As a first glance, participants’ expectations regarding the proportion of renewable energy within the energy mix have increased; this is also true for wind energy specifically. Environmental awareness related to climate change, as well as opposition against nuclear energy, has also increased. Several environmental disasters in recent years, such as the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, or events such as extreme climate change in equater region, have awaked the people’s environmental concern (Goebel et al. 2015). Environmental awareness leads people to oppose the use of fossil fuel energy in order to mitigate the effects of climate change. Opposition to nuclear energy encourages the use of non-nuclear energy, which are principally fossil fuel energy or renewable energy. When they are combined, the necessity and importance of using renewable energy naturally increase more than any other type of energy source. In addition, the respondents’ demonstrated a wilingess to learn more about renewable energy and there was a notable increase in the number of peole who stated that they agree that wind should be kept as the prioritized source for future energy production are in accordance with the “Energiewende” (EEG 2014). Increased awareness of the necessity and importance of wind energy can be one explanation, and according both to our survey and relevant literature, this seems to result in  strong public support (Petrova, 2016).
