Turning our societies from fossil fuels to renewable energies brings numerous changes in our landscapes: solar panels along highways, large rapeseed fields, wind turbines’ red lights blinking throughout the night. When designating areas for renewable energy production, it is the planning authorities’ task to designate areas in which investors can actually build energy infrastructure without conflicts. However, often there are people who do not approve of renewable energy projects. During the planning process, the planners involve local residents and discuss the effects. For this involvement, planners need evidence of the actual effects to be expected. To this end, the Energy Agency of southwestern Sweden examined the effects of a wind power project on the local job market of one of its municipalities in Blekinge county as part of the BEA-APP project.
