Resumen (es)

Este trabajo presenta una revisión extensa acerca de la importancia de las posturas ciudadanas en la implementación de las tecnologías de energías renovables (TER). En las últimas décadas la educación ha intentado comprender desde el compromiso público la aceptación social de las tecnologías de energías renovables y la participación de las comunidades en los procesos de toma de decisiones relacionados con la transición hacia la implementación de energías limpias. En este sentido, el presente trabajo hace una reflexión teórica sobre el compromiso público, la aceptación e implementación de modelos de tecnologías en energías renovables y la participación ciudadana.

Resumen (en)

This work presents an extensive review about the importance of citizen positions in the implementation of renewable energy technologies (RET). In the last decades, education has tried to understand, from the perspective of public commitment, the social acceptance of renewable energy technologies and the participation of communities in decision-making processes related to the transition towards the implementation of clean energies. In this sense, this study makes a theoretical reflection on public commitment, the acceptance and implementation of renewable energy technology models, and citizen participation.
