Additionally, the process involves assessing how these groups might be affected and suggesting measures to mitigate any adverse effects. Evidence suggests that the efficiencyand effectiveness of government actions can be increased and adverse social impacts mitigated when officials understand how a proposed action might affect; stakeholders. This report discusses how to conduct useful stakeholder analyses for government officials making decisions on energy-efficiency and renewable-energy technologies and their commercialization. It discusses methodological issuesthat may affect the validity and reliability of findings, including sampling, generalizability, validity, 'uncooperative' stakeholder groups, using social indicators, and the effect of government regulations. The Appendix contains resource directories and a list of specialists in stakeholder analysis and involvement.
