Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO053: WIMBY - Wind in my backyard

Brian Ohrbeck Hansen , Senior Development Engineer, Technical University of Denmark


Wind power is one of the fastest growing, most mature, and cost-competitive renewable energy (RE) technologies and will be a crucial pillar for achieving climate and energy goals. However, its deployment faces significant challenges due to low acceptance amongst societal actors and broader ecological, economic, and technical obstacles. Factors such as restrictive regulation, disinformation, misinformation, and concerns about changes to scenic landscapes, negative impacts on biodiversity, ecosystems, and health impede the spread of new wind power installations. Thus, it is crucial to understand that - although similarities across regions exist - social acceptance for or resistance to wind power is always context-dependent [1] as is the presence of the other above-mentioned hindering factors. To increase acceptance, counterbalance "Not in my backyard" effects, and foster support for wind power, thereby enabling its contribution to the decarbonization strategy of the European Union (EU), the "Wind in My Backyard" (WIMBY) project that started in early 2023 translates the results of in-depth models to assess the potential for the development of wind parks into useful and comprehensive information and tools for stakeholders, facilitating decision making towards lower impact and more participative wind energy deployment.
