Good practice in reconciling onshore and offshore wind with environmental objectives


GP WIND addressed barriers to the development of onshore and offshore wind generation, specifically by developing good practice in reconciling objectives on renewable energy with wider environmental objectives and actively involving communities in development and implementation. By bringing together developers, government bodies, environmental agencies and NGOs, GP WIND has developed a Good Practice Guide and a Toolkit, which can be used to facilitate deployment of renewable energy in support of the 2020 targets. These outputs were based on 16 thematic case studies covering environmental and community related issues.  The key added European value of GP WIND is to demonstrate and disseminate good practice from individual countries to target audiences from across the EU.
