Welcome to the WE Engage tool for community groups, and individuals within communities across Europe.
What you will gain using the toolkit?
This part of the tool is intended for community groups who wish to engage on an renewable energy project happening in their nearby area, or wish to develop a renewable energy project themselves.
WE Engage encourages local people to speak up, get involved, get creative and get excited about renewable energy! This tool can help to suggest measures that you can use in your local community to engage other people and improve discussions around a potential, forthcoming or operational onshore wind project.
You may find that your community wishes to be an active financial partner in the project, to benefit from the project in another way, or even to take forward your own project. This can help your community see increased financial returns from a project and feel more positively towards the development. You can speak to the developer about this to find out if it is a viable option – WE Engage can help to suggest some possible structures and discussion points to look at with the developer.HOW DO I ENGAGE MY LOCAL COMMUNITY? > HOW CAN MY COMMUNITY BENEFIT FROM A WIND PROJECT? > HOW CAN WE DEVELOP A PROJECT OURSELVES? >
