Kattach, Chadi, 2023. Wind energy and environmental impacts of wind turbine projects. Second cycle, A2E. Alnarp: SLU, Dept. of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)



My goal in writing this paper was to become more familiar with with wind farm
planning and its relationship to the landscape, as a strong and bold intervention in
the existing landscape.
I examined some of the side effects of onshore wind farms in general, By studying
different research on the effects of wind turbines on the surrounding key species
such as humans, terrestrial mammals, bats and birds. Which can be dangerous in
some cases.
Then by putting them together from a landscape perspective with the time aspects of
the life of the turbines starting with the manufacture, transportation, installation,
operation and ending with dismantling. And discussing how to avoid the negative
effect through proper project planning. To give a comprehensive view of the problem
and to work on a sustainable wind energy project.
We aspire to have clean electricity without the use of fossil fuels and their negative
effects on the climate and thus the landscape. However, we want to do this in a way
that does not harm the environment in general or biodiversity in particular. Wind
energy is one of the most effective ways to reduce these negative effects.
Research findings are primarily based on literature reviews and in addition to
simulation programs (Simscale) when studying wind resources and their effects. And
(Revit) when studying the movement of the sun and the effects of wind turbine
shadows. Additionally, I added diagram drawings that will be the highlight of my
thesis write-up and used them as a reward for a hard day of work.
