In recent decades, it produced a remarkable development of wind power in the world, which stands out EU, Spain or Galicia. Several guidelines established by the various countries that collect sectorial policies among which stands out in Directive 2001/77/EC. The differences of the criteria for action, to appreciate significantly in order to involve citizens in the process of wind power, as Japan either participating directly as donors or Denmark and Netherlands as owners of the land on which they sit. In Spain, it aprecciates he issue of valuation of land for the recovery based on the wind misfits between the price established by the use of the land and the value generated by the exploitation of wind power, and it meant a turning point in the advancement of comprehensive energy policies that include each and every one of the disciplines involved in the settlement of a wind farm (urban, environmental, fiscal, energy, agriculture, land management...). The absence of a sectorial policy with clear standards of performance in this sense does more than perpetuate or worsen, sometimes unsustainable. The case shows Galicia and other peculiarities in common with other areas of the state, showing the urgent necessity to develop a framework that regulates all aspects pending the settlement of these plants and it now goes on without a solution with a new wind law.
