Wind farms generally fall under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU. Their authorisation is subject to an EIA following the criteria set by the competent authority. Some turbines are located close to sites of nature conservation interest and also close to other wind farms. Potential impact on sites of nature conservation interest, including cumulative impacts, will be analysed carefully.
The promoter is a private company not operating in the Utilities sector, and is thus not covered by EU directives on procurement.
