Benefits and Burdens: Exploring the Role of Community Benefits in Wind Energy Development

Join WINDExchange and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for a webinar introducing Community Benefit Agreements (CBAs)!  

CBAs and similar funds and investments are voluntary mechanisms that renewable energy project developers may use to ensure wind and renewable energy projects deliver financial and non-financial benefits to the communities that host them. They are a focal point of discussion in the renewable energy field, especially concerning offshore wind development and equity. 

Following the structure of WINDExchange’s Wind Energy Community Benefits Guide, the webinar will explore the nuances of community benefits from multiple angles and provide insights relevant to land-based wind energy, offshore wind energy, and other renewable energy technologies. In addition, the webinar will include presentations from NREL and from two representatives from organizations working on community benefits approaches.
