This article discusses legal and policy issues relating to the development of wind energy from a European perspective. Wind power is a promising technology for generating electricity from renewable resources. It has the potential to play an important role in sustainable energy supply. Wind energy today is moving beyond alternative energy into the mainstream. With its ability to make a considerable contribution to meeting climate change obligations and mandatory targets imposed on EU Member States, wind power also increases the energy security of EU Member States by reducing their dependence on fossil fuels.
