About the course

The course addresses the planning conditions for wind power development. It provides a deeper theoretical understanding of planning and social acceptance issues as well as practical skills in how to work with local consultation processes, communication and conflict management. Topics covered include, for example, legislation, policy, sound and visual impacts. Methodologically, the course gives an introduction to geographical information systems (ArcGIS) and observation methods.

The course's different topics are also practiced through exercises. You will also independently plan and execute practical assignments within a scientific study on an advanced level; either in relation to an ongoing research project at the department, or by designing a research study on an advanced level.
