The data set was collected in Switzerland in 2016. A trilingual survey on future energy provision in Switzerland collected 8’287 interviews from a repre-sentative sample provided by the Federal Office of Statistics; respondents where invited by postal mail to participate in the online survey. After three invitations, the response rate was at 41.7%. The data set "OHL_LUP" is a subsample of this larger sample. The 1’129 respondents (randomly drawn from the overall sample) received a module on the acceptance of (hybrid) high voltage lines.
