Abstract

With increasing worldwide energy demand, many energy-related issues are growing, including global warming, energy sustainability, and environmental pollution. These challenges force nations to actively endorse renewable energy development policies. As a result, numerous renewable energy projects are executed around the globe, which are confronting various hurdles, causing failure for many of current projects. This study, therefore, aims to suggest that community participation in planning and decision-making is an imperative mediator through which government support (GS) and organizational innovativeness (OI) can positively affect renewable project success. Data was collected through a survey from 650 respondents of the renewable energy projects in Pakistan, and hypotheses were proved by employing structural equation modeling (SEM). The findings show that GS and OI have a significant positive impact on the CP and project success. Moreover, CP was realized to partially mediates these relationships. It is expected that the findings present guidelines for the government authorities so that they endeavor and make better policies for involving the community as a mediator in project planning and decision making for renewable energy projects.
