Aesthetics

Altering the existing landscape or seascape.

Aesthetics

The addition of renewable energy devices can drastically change the landscape or seascape. Some people appreciate the devices and even use them to attract tourists, while others dislike the new addition as an imposition on the natural environment. Many stakeholders are opposed to a project because of NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) - the idea that someone believes that the development will help society, but is unwilling for the development to occur close to them. Wind energy may have more impact on aesthetics because of their proximity to people and their height, as opposed to marine renewable energy that may be closer to the surface or even underwater.
