    The development obtained by the renewable energies in last years was motivated partly by the summit obtained by the wind power, as source provided of electricity, in a context of depletion of the fossil resources, and of search of alternative resources that were guaranteeing the supply but with minor environmental impact. In this context, the wind power emphasizes for not emission of toxic substances to the way, but with everything, the process of installation and construction of the wind farms on the part of the companies promoters, is not innocuous. In spite of the existence of a wide regulation, so much worldwide, like of Spain and Galicia, the minimal conditions are not fulfilled demanded to guarantee the respect on the environment. Galicia occupied a place of reference in the development of the wind power in the las fifteen years, though given the nonexistence of an integral model of development of the sector, it does not stand out for a slightly harmful process of impantation. On the contrary, an important part of the wind farms the are placed in protected areas of the Network Nature 2000.
