ConSite Wind – Consensus-based siting of onshore wind energy development

ConSite Wind is a Spatial Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis toolbox (S-MCDA) that is useful to build consensus, optimise spatial planning and improve transparent decision-making processes during the planning and licensing phase of wind energy projects. ConSite is designed to perform a combination of modern multi-criteria evaluation and decision analysis techniques for optimal siting of wind-power plants based on ecological, societal and technological criteria. The toolbox has been developed through several earlier and ongoing research projects. So far, further development of the ConSite Wind web app includes additional maps, preference weights and new functionality to support a traffic light planning approach. The beta-version now operational. Development of the Online data catalogue is in progress. This innovation is currently at TRL 5.
