Resumen

HERNANDEZ P., Beatriz  y  HUEPE MINOLETTI, Claudio. Citizen Participation in Public Energy Policies: Reflections for an Energy-Sustainable Chile. Polis [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.53, pp.220-255. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.32735/s0718-6568/2019-n53-1390.

This study analyzes the current state of the relationship between citizen participation and public policy formulation, and the importance of public opinion in making policy decisions regarding the environment and energy in Chile, using in particular a review of opinion polls and interviews with experts. The study analyzes whether the existing information and public awareness mechanisms in this area correspond to those that allow for more effective citizen participation. In the absence of clear participation mechanisms, public opinion polls are evaluated to see if any of the relevant elements of this opinion are considered in current energy efficiency policies. Afterwards, we review whether the information and awareness-raising mechanisms on energy efficiency issues have been appropriate for the objectives. We conclude that important institutional innovations and best practices are required in order to aspire to a public policy with more relevant citizen participation.

Palabras clave : Citizen participation; public policy; public opinion; energy efficiency; sensibilization; sociology.
