WE Engage, online platform for gathering public support for onshore wind power, was launched by the European Union–funded project Wise Power. Through information and advice the channel enables developers and industry stakeholders to engage with transmission system operators and local communities on permitting and planning. WE Engage tends to lean on best practice for the design of social engagement strategies for onshore wind projects.

Wise Power said the interactive tool creates a one-stop shop for information-sharing, with a focus on innovative financing through cooperatives and crowdfunding. The platform was developed following extensive research including over 200 questionnaires from industry and public stakeholders across Europe. Wise Power covers Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain and the United Kingdom. Partners from the UK include the Scottish Government and Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, the local government council for area Na h-Eileanan Siar.
