Renewables seem to be find growing groups of opposition: this one in Norway - against a wind project.
The draft framework, presented in April, was in the process of being consulted upon. It identified 13 areas best suited for future wind development. However, a large amount of local opposition, over environmental and tourism concerns, has forced the government to end it. Protests were organised across the country. ... Norway’s prime minister Erna Solberg told local news organisation NRK, "We will have no national framework for wind power in the future." NRK said 56 municipality governments were consulted as part of the process, and 49 responded with a clear opposition against wind development in their region.
