  • Social psychology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Renewable energy, NIMBY, Opposition, Place attachment and Wind power. The concepts of his Renewable energy study are interwoven with issues in Economic growth, Public economics, Process and Diversity. Patrick Devine-Wright has researched NIMBY in several fields, including Political economy and Public engagement.

His Opposition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Offshore wind power, Empirical research, Social psychology and The Symbolic. His Place attachment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Procedural justice, Social science, Place identity and Environmental ethics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Social acceptance, Public value and Contradiction in addition to Wind power.

His most cited work include:

  • Beyond NIMBYism: towards an integrated framework for understanding public perceptions of wind energy (838 citations)
  • Psychological benefits of greenspace increase with biodiversity (805 citations)
  • Rethinking NIMBYism: The role of place attachment and place identity in explaining place‐protective action (761 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Patrick Devine-Wright spends much of his time researching Social psychology, Renewable energy, Place attachment, Public relations and Environmental planning. His Renewable energy research includes elements of Wind power, Environmental economics, NIMBY and Environmental resource management. His NIMBY research incorporates themes from Empirical research and Public engagement.

Patrick Devine-Wright interconnects Epistemology, Environmental ethics, Opposition and Place identity in the investigation of issues within Place attachment. His research integrates issues of Focus group and Political economy in his study of Opposition. His work carried out in the field of Public relations brings together such families of science as Perception and Social engagement.
