ewz wants and needs to build Wind and PV in Switzerland as well...
End of 2017: 75 MW / 135 GWh (->Reference Stigafjellet) KEV: 48 MW built / 1'000 MW accepted, not built
Challenge: communal votes and objections
3-7 years for concession 7 years for objections and Federal Supreme court decision
Capacity factors 42% vs 22% Total investments cost: 1.1-1.3 m€, CH 2-3 m€ Cost structure Development time: CH 10-14 years
Characteristics of the Mollendruz wind farm Steps of the project Objections .
Political mandate: Public vote 24. September 2017 200m CHF for renewable energy investments 1/3 in Switzerland
Social acceptance: an extremely important issue (communal voting) .
Most projects initiated 2008 (start of KEV) Majority of them have no final permit yet (objections) The oldest project was initiated 1999 3-7 years until communal vote (concession) 7 years for objections and Federal Supreme Court
Key results of the stakeholder analysis
Presentation of the Mollendruz project to illustrate the objection issue Description: 12 wind turbines, 24-36MW, Jura Mountains (VD) Steps of the project 2007-2018 and objections (+220, petitions)
Swiss particularities: decentralized country, direct democracy Social acceptance must be localy studied Zürich's "arrogance"
A stakeholder analysis has been made in order to get a better idea of the social acceptance of the Mollendruz project Well-organised associations of opponents: parent and daughter associations, strong cooperation, mutual actions and arguments Main argument: landscape protection Next step: individual level
We studied the argumentation of the opponents to strengthen ours and develop solutions Presentation of éoLab: aesthetic dimension, community Local/Supraregional: street furniture/guide
