Component 3: Legal and economic obstacles

There are several problem levels determined by the WEBSR partners this comp will address:
  1. National law: Despite of all wind energy projects that have been implemented in the partner countries over the last years, there are still legal regulations, particularly related to wind farm planning, that hinder further wind energy implementation. Such problems and obstacles will be determined and illustrated on exemplary regions for all partner countries.
  2. The economic efficiency of wind farm projects got in danger due to the financial crisis. Thus, the partner countries face currently a rapid decrease of project implementations. Here, new financing models (funding, subsidies included) have to be elaborated. In addition, current "organisational" problems will be investigated here (grid interconnection, availability of (certified) devices etc.).
  3. Several regions require support from international experience to improve the cooperation between communities and companies regarding wind farm planning and implementation.
  4. Other obstacles lay in the EU-regulations themselves: some of them do not correspond with each other in every point - the project will define these problematic aspects and to give recommendations how to deal with this.
All mentioned analyses will result in strategies for mediation and moderation/recommendations that help to overcome existing problems, mainly addressed to municipalities, planners and investors on national level and to decision-makers on EU-level. Summarized as "guidelines", the recommendations given by the project team will be distributed as widely as possible to get the needed support.
