Building Stronger Communities Wind’s Growing Role in Regional Australia
Story Highlights: 

Australia’s 82 operational wind farms deliver significant financial and social benefits to their host communities. Sharing these benefits equitably with local host communities ensures these projects generate not just much-needed clean energy, but also strengthen the social and economic fabric of regional Australia. This report investigates Community Enhancement Funds and other benefit sharing mechanisms to better understand how wind energy is contributing to the resilience of regional Australia. A range of case studies show how these funds deliver tangible outcomes in towns across rural Australia. The report also presents the first catalogue of wind farm Community Enhancement Funds across the nation and illustrates the direct and indirect financial and social benefits to Australia’s regional communities from wind power.
