Social micro-siting: increasing acceptance through local adaption

Abstract [en]

The establishment of land-based wind-farms often requires large land areas affecting a number of contradictory interests including the individual interests of citizens. In Sweden consultation is statutory, prescribed by Swedish Environmental Code including all individuals affected by the project. Projectors often invite to consultative process in a stage where the project has made some progress and where a site-plan is more or less established. From the citizen perspective, wind farm projects affecting the local area might seem threatening. For instance, for people living in rural areas, the characteristics of the surrounding environment are closely connected to their way of life. Thereby, “threats” towards the local environment might pose a threat to their entire outlook on life. Often this leads to frustration and rage towards the projector. This presentation introduces the basic features of a consultative process more thoroughly involving and adjusting to citizens and their local community and the distinguishing characteristics of their local physical and social environment, Social Micro-Siting. Social Micro-Siting has the potential to create added value to the participating community and to the projector, increasing the general acceptance of wind-farm localization. As the process is based on ongoing dialogue with the local citizens, it might also provide solutions to complex local issues of a more practical character.
