Wind energy & social acceptance

Date: Jun 3-4, 2014
Location: Berlin
Presenter: Phil Brogan
Conference: SKF 9th Annual Wind Farm Management Conference


Renewable energy is consistently supported in national polling - so why do we need to talk about social acceptance? This presentation considers this question in a UK onshore wind context, exploring whether there is a difference between national polling and developers’ on-the-ground experience, as well as looking at the role of national and local politicians in the wind debate. The presentation covers also how government and developers are focussing on community engagement and community benefits in the UK, including the groundbreaking initiatives being pioneered by the onshore wind sector – including RES’ own Local Electricity Discount Scheme (LEDS).
