This month I attended a workshop with Peter Jones, who researches institutional governance of marine protected areas.
While the work doesn't
relate directly to my research on domestic solar energy, I found there were
definitely parallels between the way marine protected areas are governed and
the way people respond to solar incentives programs. In particular, and this
might not seem like rocket science but it seems to be overlooked by many
developing policy, the success of policies implemented to support both marine
protected areas and solar systems are dependent on how different stakeholders
respond to stimulus.

blog post here.
