Consultation to gain the necessary acceptance

Similarly to infrastructure projects, wind farm projects are increasingly facing social acceptance difficulties in the areas concerned. Even though a majority of the French are in favour of wind energy in the fight against climate change, acceptance becomes more difficult when it comes to installing wind turbines in the area.

So, how do we win the acceptance necessary for the success of the projects? How do we overcome local opposition that arises during the wind turbine installation process? How do we make sure those in favour of wind projects are heard in the debate?

Our convictions


Form a trusting and close bond with the population by working transparently, with sincerity, a listening ear and a constant dialogue.


Rely on the democratic participation of the residents to design a project anchored in the history, culture and identity of the area.


Develop a co-construction dynamic around an attractive project that creates value and opportunities.

To this end, we implement a range of solutions, from the birth of the project up until the public inquiry.

  • Understand the area: preparation of an area diagnosis and a project perception study involving around thirty local stakeholders.
  • Explain and promote the project: information letters, websites, public information desks, exhibits, visits to active wind farms, etc.
  • Co-construct the project: collaboration on the measures to be taken to compensate for the impact of the wind farm, assistance to the economic stakeholders to anticipate and benefit from the project, etc.

This consultation process, which is entirely voluntary, enables us to build “support capital” that is indispensable to the success of the project.
