Strategic Issues of Public Perceptions on Wind Turbines Placement. Case Study: The Netherlands and Romania

Abstract: Although the aspect of social perception towards wind turbine placement has been emphasized in the last years in public reports in the European Union, few detailed analyses of the actual causes and possible methods of solution from the citizens perspective have been inquired. As new wind turbine installments have approached residential areas affecting landscape and daily life quality of the citizens, several countries have faced public reactions against further expansion of these projects.

The main objective of the paper is to research the issue of public acceptance towards wind parks installment depending on possible locations, their perceived visual effects and other impacts on the environment. Secondly, alternatives towards increasing public acceptance of wind projects in residential areas have been investigated in order to gain a complex overview of possible mitigation methods for this type of risk. The Delphi method based on questionnaires has been used for the purpose of obtaining responses from 35 citizens from the Netherlands and 26 participants from Romania, who offered a valuable insight into local reactions on the matter.
