As Replied on Leaf Talk......
We are students on an MSc course in Renewable Energy, Enterprise and Management at Newcastle University.http://www.ncl.ac.uk/sage/postgrad/taught/reem/
Our project brief is "to create, develop and document (or work towards developing and documenting) an innovative product or service which will be of commercial interest to the Renewable Energy sector."
As such, our dissertations have to include some element of a business plan format so the survey is quite like a market research questionnaire as you say.
We are happy to release details of our findings, and send copies of the final report to interested parties.
Happy to answer any other questions.
