Abstract: The development of Renewable Energies(RE)must be stepped upin the coming years if we areto successfullyrealizethe ambitiousenergy transition challenge set by manygovernments across the globe. In this context, we used a Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE) combined with a Geographical Information System (GIS) to assess the willingness of individualsin the French context to switchto a more virtuousenergy mixbasedon three energy sources(wind, photovoltaic and biogas). Our findingsshowthatinhabitants living in areas with the presence of REwith negative externalities(Wind Turbines and Anaerobic Digestion units)tend to have a lower Willingness to Pay(WTP)than other areas, indicatinga principle of territorial distributive justice. In this context, people ask for greaterterritorial equity in the distribution of externalitiessincethey consider they “have already done their part”.Accordingly, our study argues for morepublic policy effort to plan the location of future RE facilitiesin a more equitable way.
