Our expertise in Onshore Wind

Our experience

Our teams of experts are with you every step of the way to ensure that your projects are implemented in harmony with their surroundings.


From development to operation, including the construction phases, RWE is committed to an active consultation process that meets the expectations of local residents and users.

The Group is committed to communicating in a transparent and educational way at every stage of the project. It ensures that its development is consistent with the host region by involving the relevant stakeholders in the various phases of the project. 

Wind farm projects raise legitimate questions. In response, RWE implements appropriate consultation procedures and establishes constructive dialogue with local stakeholders.

Our beliefs

  • RWE Image

Establish a relationship of trust and proximity with local stakeholders through a continuous, sincere and attentive dialogue.

  • RWE Image

Draw on the residents' expertise to design a project rooted in the area's history, culture and identity.

  • RWE Image

Take a co-construction approach, creating value and opportunities around attractive projects.

Concerted action for projects and regions

Our aim is to develop projects that are efficient, well thought-out and integrated into the local environment. Local authorities are therefore systematically consulted from the earliest stages of development, so that we can understand the local issues and build a project tailored to each environment.

To achieve this, we implement a range of solutions, from project start-up to wind farm operation:

  • Understanding the area: carrying out an analysis of the area and a study of how the project is perceived by around thirty local stakeholders.

  • Explain and promote the project: newsletters, dedicated websites, public meetings, exhibitions, visits to wind farms in operation, etc.

  • Co-constructing the project: collaborative work on the measures to be implemented to compensate for the impacts of the wind farm, supporting economic players in overcoming potential problems and benefitting from the project.

  • Continuous dialogue: communication and consultation during the construction and operation phases with local authorities and wind farm stakeholders.

This consultation process, which is entirely voluntary, is essential to the success of the project.

Did you know?

All wind and solar farm projects are subject to a public enquiry procedure. Information about the project (including the environmental impact assessment) is published once the application for authorisation or permit* has been submitted. Any person or organisation may then submit questions or comments for a period of one month. All contributions will be submitted to the developer via the investigating commissioners for response. The documents resulting from the public enquiry procedure are taken into account in the prefectorial decision on whether or not the project will be authorised. 

* For solar projects, this is an application for planning permission; for wind projects, this is an application for environmental authorisation.
