Project Details


Wind power is one of the fastest-growing, most mature and cost-competitive renewable energy technologies. But its deployment
faces significant challenges due to a lack of understanding of the (distribution of) complex (positive and negative) impacts and
their interplay with low local acceptance. WIMBY addresses these challenges by fostering the societal engagement of citizens and
stakeholders so that wind energy gains substantially more popular support, thereby enabling its role in Europe's decarbonisation goals.
To do so, WIMBY 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..
