Abstract:The realisation of wind turbines at and near dikes offers opportunities for achieving Dutch sustainability goals. A few of these Wind-on-Dike projects have now been implemented or realised. AnteaGroup, a consultant on wind turbine development, notes that bottlenecks in the decision-making process of water authorities lead to many initiatives not coming off the ground. Through a case study, conflicts and causes have been identified in the decision-making process and appropriate influence techniques have been selected from literature for the prevention and resolution of these conflicts. This study shows that almost half of the conflicts relate to the failure to guard stakeholder’s interests. The most successful technique for preventing these conflicts, is to involve and motivate relevant stakeholders in the development process of wind parks. During forthcoming projects, AnteaGroup can apply the recommendations of this study. The reduction of the number of conflicts will probably increase the chance of realising Wind-on-Dike projects and encourages entrepreneurs to invest more in this type of projects, in which AnteaGroup can offer its expertise.
