About the project
The WISE Power "WE Engage" Toolkit
The WE Engage Toolkit is designed to help all stakeholders build, implement and deliver effective and meaningful social engagement strategies in relation to onshore wind farms. The toolkit has been split into user groups - developers, transmission network operators, communities, local authorities and other stakeholders can use the tool in the way best suited to specific needs.
The toolkit is an innovative and interactive tool, and also relies on input from users by building a bank of case studies from across Europe, showing good practice and learning points from real life experience.
This tool was developed within the framework of the WISE Power project (see information below).
Information on WISE Power Project
Launched in May 2014, WISE Power is an ambitious EU funded project about the social acceptance of wind energy.
WISE Power aims at significantly improving local engagement and support for wind turbines while enhancing local community participation in the planning and implementation of wind energy projects. The project has a strong focus on alternative financing - such as community and cooperative funding of wind farms - as a method to enhance social engagement.
