To achieve the EUʼs climate and energy targets by 2030 and beyond, the production and use of renewable energy sources will need to accelerate. This transformation will affect every part of our lives, including our environment, economy and society. As one of the key renewable sources, the deployment of wind energy needs to be fair, democratic and effective.
JustWind4All is a Horzion Europe research and innovation project that supports the acceleration of on- and offshore wind energy, including emerging wind technologies like airborne and floating, through just and effective governance.
Using a trans-disciplinary approach, the project aims to better understand the trade-offs of wind energy deployment, improve decision-making and foster wind energy citizenship.
JustWind4All addresses 4 challenges to wind energy deployment, including:
RGI convenes and coordinates JustWind4All’s Wind Forum. The Wind Forum builds upon and enhances existing networks of wind energy actors with a common interest in accelerating just wind energy development.
The Wind Forum brings together local, regional, national and EU-level stakeholders across policy, community, market and third sector to meet, network, and exchange knowledge on demand-driven strategies.
Within the Wind Forum, we have five regional Wind Labs that serve as spaces for idea and knowledge exchange to connect actors and researchers in addressing and testing specific challenges and solutions for accelerated wind energy development. The Wind Labs test and promote the application of our research assessing socio-environmental impact, energy system modelling, and wind energy citizenship.
Over the next three years, the Wind Forum will organise several participatory activities with diverse stakeholders from local, regional, national, and European levels . If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
