Dans quelle mesure la participation citoyenne peut-elle permettre d'améliorer l'appropriation locale des projets éoliens ? Le cas d'Heume-l'Église

Abstract : France aims to double its installed wind power capacity by 2028. To achieve this goal, many wind farms will have to be established in the territory, which raises the question of local acceptance of these farms. As wind projects are true territorial projects, we are entitled to aim for a higher degree of integration: local appropriation. If citizen participation is an imperative in the development of locally anchored wind energy projects, it can take different forms that do not imply the same degree of commitment. A classic distinction is made between projects that include a fraction of crowdfunding that does not give access to governance, on the one hand, and projects with local governance, also known as citizen projects, on the other. Finally, consultation, or even co-construction, around a wind project is another form of citizen participation. It is in this philosophy of consultation that the Energy Common Project (EPC, registered trademark by Solaterra) approach was founded. It was initiated in Heume-l'Église in 2019. After a presentation of the town's renewable energy potential to the municipal council, a consultation phase identified the landscape as the main challenge for the area. A landscape pre-study was then used to identify a preferential implantation zone. This case study illustrates the impact that consultation can have on the local appropriation of a wind energy project.
