WISE Power

Fostering Social Acceptance for Wind Power

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. 

Running time: May 2014 - October 2016

WISE Power receives funding under the Intelligent Energy Europe programme of the European Union. It counts on a consortium of 14 partners with EWEA leading as coordinator.
