Achieving Renewable Energy Targets Renewable Energy Objectives Community Needs Wider Environmental Concerns
Single issue focus can upset the balance… Renewable Energy Objectives Community Needs Wider Environmental Concerns
Change of focus… Renewable Energy Objectives Community Needs Wider Environmental Concerns
Licenses Processes HabitatWildlife Shipping Displacement aquaculture Fishing Community issues Policy V’s Reality AcceptabilityConstruction disturbance Process Failures
Balancing the equation... Renewable Energy Objectives Community Needs Wider Environmental Concerns
The challenge is… Renewable Energy Objectives Community Needs Wider Environmental Concerns
Whist looking after these…
GP WIND’s contribution… Address barriers to the deployment of onshore and offshore wind generation. Bring together developers, regional and local government, environmental agencies and NGOs from differing countries to share experiences Recording and sharing good practice. Develop a guide to good practice and a 'how to' toolkit, which will be used to facilitate deployment of renewable energy in support of the 2020 targets.
The goal… Renewable Energy Objectives Community Needs Wider Environmental Concerns

In setting out a large scale project like this there will always be some of this…
A little of this…
But mostly, lots of this…
A critical issue for me is…
Project Scope The project’s outputs and recommendations will focus on off-shore and on-shore wind energy.
Giulia Cammozzini Project Manager Scottish Government
The Methodology Surveys Detailed case studies of onshore and offshore wind energy projects. Identifying market barriers and process failures Pulling together good practice which can be transferred to other regions and technologies.
The Project Outputs Increase the consenting rate for on and offshore wind projects Build evidence based support for the design, planning and implementation of projects which are sensitive to environmental and community concerns; Assist quicker, more transparent and less costly deployment of wind energy across Europe, Secure endorsement of project outputs
