Abstract

This paper investigates the rural public acceptance on stand-alone Renewable Energy (RE) project for the utilization of the Pusat Penyelidikan Ekosistem Marin (EKOMAR) which is located at Kampung Tanjung Resang, Mersing. Two surveys were conducted which are before and after the installation of a hybrid wind-solar renewable energy. The main result showed that 54.7% and 96.2 % of respondents were aware about the RE technologies such as wind and solar energy in before and after the project. In overall, the rural residents were generally supportive toward the RE project at EKOMAR and as well as RE technologies.
