On the 18th of september Pondera Consult greeted around 70 people at the office of Stibbe legal advisors to discuss wind energy participation.
Topics covered were participation theory, strategic stakeholder management, financial and juridical implications as well as lessons learned from wind farms projects such as Noordoostpolder, Fryslân and Utrecht. A clear picture emerged on what is needed for participation in wind energy projects: have a clear objective of what you want to achieve with participation, every project requires a custom fit and (unfortunately) there are no shortcuts: it will take a lot of time. In the end, it turned out to be an animated day which produced concrete results and some food for thought. With many thanks to our speakers and participants.
