Wind Farm Tour Circle

In March 2018, the Clean Energy Council released a research report on community engagement and benefit-sharing at Australian wind farms.

The research report Enhancing Positive Social Outcomes from Wind Farm Development provides a snapshot of community engagement and benefit-sharing practices at Australian wind farms.

The report presents a foundation for better understanding between wind farm developers and communities, as well as a range of recommendations for sharing the benefits of these projects with locals.

In addition to the full report, six briefing papers are available that summarise the report's key findings.
