Best Practice Cases

The project has developed a set of 30 good practice cases from all 6 project countries (Germany, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Poland and Spain). They showcase measures to strengthen the social acceptance of wind energy, including novel participatory models and mechanisms for:

  • planning and permitting procedures,
  • enabling active and passive financial participation of citizens and communities,
  • promoting regional co-benefits
  • reducing environmental impacts, and
  • effective communication strategies.

10 Best Practice Cases were selected based on their transferability to different contexts and environments. WinWind initiates transfers of 5 of these best practices within and between project countries, using a learning laboratories approach. This ultimately results in the production of a transfer guide with high usability within and beyond the geographic scope of the project.
