Windlab - Coonooer Bridge Wind Farm innovates 'social licence' from local communities

Sydney - December 21, 2013

Eagle Corporate Advisers served as legal counsel to Windlab Systems Pty Ltd, ('Windlab'), a spin-off company from CSIRO, on building out an innovative 'social licence' approach to wind farm project development. Some thirty land owners are shareholders in the project as a result.

Eagle Corporate Advisers advised Windlab on structuring and implementing the Wind Farm project in Coonooer Bridge, a small farming community north-west of Bendigo. Based on gaining a 'social licence' to operate Windlab has strived to achieve not just regulatory approval for the project, but a much better level of local acceptance as well.

Windlab is one of the world's most innovative wind farm project development companies. It has headquarters in Canberra, Australia and wholly owned subsidiaries in Canada, South Africa and the USA. For more information about Windlab, please visit
