Early engagement of local communities is crucial for developing renewables

A joint paper by the World Resources Institute and Ørsted lays out recommendations for how governments can improve public support for the energy transition, highlighting the importance of community engagement.

By Energy Monitor Staff

Local governments must engage with local communities early in the development of clean energy projects or run the risk of resistance and delays to implementation, say the not-for-profit World Resources Institute and Danish power company Ørsted.

Wind Power Market seeing increased risk and disruption

The wind power market has grown at a CAGR of 14% between 2010 and 2021 to reach 830 GW by end of 2021. This has largely been possible due to favourable government policies that have provided incentives to the sector. This has led to an increase in the share of wind in the capacity mix, going from a miniscule 4% in 2010 to 10% in 2021. This is further set to rise to 15% by 2030. However, the recent commodity price increase has hit the sector hard, increasing risks for wind turbine manufacturers and project developers, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis has caused further price increase and supply chain disruption. In light of this, GlobalData has identified which countries are expected to add the majority of wind power capacity out to 2030.

A working paper, published this week by the organisations, identifies community concerns over renewable energy projects as a key challenge inhibiting the decarbonisation of the power sector.

Planning processes often fail to take account of public and stakeholder worries about potential local impacts, it states. The subsequent opposition can lead to considerable delays in projects being built.

The report recommends that governments adopt standardised renewable energy permitting and planning processes that factor in local socio-economic and environmental impacts, and encourage the participation of residents and other stakeholders.
