Verhoef, J.P. de Vries, L. Gonzalez-Aparicio, I. Publication year 2022 Abstract Onshore wind deployment does not progress as fast as planned. One of the main causes of delays of wind energy projects resulting in delays and challenges for new wind farm developments is the social acceptance and the environmental impact, in particular impact on birds. In recent years, public consultation is defined as integral part of environmental and socio-economic assessments and of maritime spatial planning processes. Early involvement of all groups crucial for the timely deployment of new capacity. As regards the environment, the real impact of wind energy in air habitats is quantified by assumptions that are not validated with real and accurate data. The lack of data challenges the inclusion of these constraints in spatial analysis. These impacts based on assumptions reduce the potentially available area for new projects and require curtailments strategies, limitations and penalties to wind farm developers and owners, impacting the business case of the project.
