Engaging local communities
Environmental impacts, social acceptance & spatial planning on land and at sea
When: Wednesday, 29 November 2017, 11:30 - 12:45
Each wind farm site may be unique but join us sharing successful examples on how to build large wind farms with full support from the local communities. The session will bring experience from finalized projects onshore in Portugal, a large project in Netherlands as well as first learnings from a recently initiated offshore project. In addition, we will have a panel discussion where we welcome your interaction, moderated by Garry Keagan, coordinator of IEA Task 28 on social acceptance bringing forward Irish experience.
