Project objective

WISE Power project is about social acceptance of wind energy. It wants to increase local awareness and participation in the planning and implementation of wind power projects with the aim of reducing social resistance that often results in practical obstacles – such as significant slowdowns – to the deployment of the wind projects. The project has a strong focus on alternative measures of funding – such as community and cooperative funding of wind farms – that may have an impact on empowering the local communities and enhancing social engagement.
