    Environmental aspects

    The authorisation of both wind farms was subject to an environmental impact assessment (EIA) process. Permit amendment processes are ongoing at the time of appraisal. Some turbines are located close to sites of nature conservation and also close to other wind farms.


    The European Commission has exempted all contracts which are being awarded to implement electricity generation projects in Austria from the scope of the Utilities Directive. No public procurement is required.
