This project evaluates existing practices in community benefit models for offshore renewables. We identify and evaluate national and international case studies of different community benefit models, and provide evidence of how community benefits are delivered and distributed. In particular we consider the key relationship between how communities are identified, how impact is perceived, and how benefits may therefore be apportioned. We then assess the different mechanisms and schemes of benefit-sharing to identify good practice and key points of learning for Scottish policy and planning.
