Abstract: 

Thrace, in northeastern Greece, is a crucial habitat of European value for the survival of the continent’s birds of prey, and it is also designated as a priority area for the development of wind farms. Consequently, it is a valuable case study for identifying the conditions under which common ground can be found. A proactive planning system grounded on sound research and analysis and robust environmental impact assessments will direct wind farm development to the most suitable locations. It will also reduce the negative impacts of wind farms and reduce the time and resources required for the approval of individual projects, while improving the reputation of the wind energy sector.
