Abstract: 

We think that most people are passionate about landscape, as a source of inspiration, as a setting for the production of food or as daily surroundings. We discuss how wind energy developments affect people’s perception of landscape through the number, composition, and size of turbines in wind farms. Landscapes are constantly changing, and some significant changes are the result of measures we take to combat climate change, including building wind farms. Wind energy has been harnessed for centuries, but recent technological advancement has seen turbine size rapidly increase. We discuss the issues of very large turbines in relation to landscapes, and how a proactive design approach can make a positive contribution to the wind farm industry.
