Abstract

Most conflicts are resolvable, including conflicts of interest between anti-windfarm protesters, communities and wind energy developers. Successful resolutions are achieved through identifying the conflicting parties’ material and psychological needs and motivations, as well as utilising effective engagement strategies. Evidence from original research into five cases of wind energy siting disputes across the UK is used to formulate lessons for protest groups and developers on how to enhance their negotiation skills with the prospect of resolving on-going and future conflicts such that both parties arrive at a win-win situation.
