Abstract: The survey comprised demographic items and measures to assess both political and values orientations. These were followed by contingent choice questions to assess participants’ support for the 50% RET at eight cost amounts. Abstract: This study investigated how projected electricity prices and personal values influence public support for a 50% renewable energy target (RET) in Australia. In an online experiment, 404 participants rated their support for a 50% RET across eight projected increases in their quarterly power bills. Multi-level modelling indicated that: (1) support for the 50% RET fell as the projected price of electricity increased, (2) although participants with low self-enhancement values and high self-transcendent values were most supportive of the 50% RET, these value-based differences disappeared as projected electricity prices increased. We discuss the implications of these findings for energy policy design and communications.
