Abstract

The development of renewable energies in every region of the country is one of the techniques that can be adopted to achieve clean energy. Solar, wind, biomass, and hydropower are some of the most common renewable energy sources. The hurdles of implementing renewable energy are still relatively small portion due to a lack of public awareness, pricing, financial constraints, and a lack of technological understanding. The focus of this research would be to see how community acceptability and other factors influence the use of social renewable energy in Sarawak. Public awareness, technology knowledge, perceived ease of use, and perceived usefulness are the independent variables in this study whereas acceptance is the dependent variable. According to the findings, public awareness, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness have a larger influence on renewable technology acceptability. However, studies show that there is a weak and remain positive relationship between technology knowledge and acceptability of renewable energy technology. The research suggested that the government, non-government organizations, and individuals should all be concerned about the environment. Furthermore, the government should train a large number of young people in renewable energy technology development, as well as provide incentives to communities that adopt renewable energy technology.
