Abstract This Ph.D. thesis empirically analyzes the factors that act as facilitators or impediments of Renewable Energy adoption by economic agents. Within three interrelated chapters, this thesis focuses on the adoption process of micro and large-scale Renewable Energy Technologies (RETs). The first chapter improves the understanding of the on-grid renewable energy micro-generation technology innovation borrowing elements from the Diffusion of Innovations Theory and empirically analyzes its adoption process by using data from households in Crete, Greece. The results shed light on preference heterogeneity for micro-generation technologies and lead to useful implications for policy-making and market development. The second chapter provides a comparative analysis of the performance of parametric and nonparametric methodologies for predicting the choice of micro-generation technologies based on renewable energy from stated preference data. Chapters 1 and 2 use a novel dataset from survey data of Cretan homeowners. The third chapter explores the main factors affecting the propagation of large-scale RETs investments focusing on supporting policy mechanisms and on the institutional factor of government corruption. The data used in the third chapter are panel data for 48 countries, and they come from environmental statistics and accounts and self-gathered data on country-based policy mechanisms. Their analysis provides useful implications for large-scale RETs policy-making and further explains their adoption process.
