WEB0714 Effective EIA - Influencing Renewable Energy Proposals

Developers increasingly recognise that an effective EIA process can save time and money by bringing critical information into the early stages of the siting, layout and design of a development. When environmental and community impacts are avoided a project can reduce objections and avoid the risk of delay from further information request.

This webinar will explore a number of case studies where EIAs positively influenced the design of proposed renewable energy projects with the aim of identifying the basis for their success.
