The required developments in energy policy pose new challenges for the planning, implementation, and communication connected to energy infrastructures. The prevention or resolution of conflicts between operators, citizens, and organizations through communication must not be understood as "gaining acceptance". Rather, the energy strategy and each project must be conceptualized and communicated from the outset in such a way that the affected population is involved and can make informed decisions. In order for such a dialogue to be perceived as transparent and credible, the impartiality of the facilitation is important. Not all energy projects need (comprehensive) participatory dialogues. Continuous monitoring of public perception helps to decide when to consider which forms of dialogue.
