Enefit Green used a virtual reality solution to introduce new wind farms to give neighbors of the wind farm a better idea of ​​what the wind farms actually look like.

“When planning new wind farms, the appearance of the wind turbines is one of the main questions that people ask. The more clearly we can provide information about the parks, the less misinformation and fears about them will spread. In the new virtual reality solution, people can view the planned wind farm in a familiar landscape from different locations. We are also gathering feedback on how to further develop the solution so that it provides as many answers as possible to the people of the community,” said Enefit Green’s Wind Energy Area Manager Lauri Ulm.

Currently, the first views of the Rist and Põlendmaa wind farms have been completed, but virtual reality solutions for other Enefit Green developments are also planned. Windmills can be viewed from several directions and at different heights with VR glasses. A 360-degree view of the landscape opens to the user with VR glasses, where a real-life visual of windmills working at full power has been created.

“Wind farms help ensure affordable electricity prices for consumers and the country’s energy security, and are thus a long-term solution to the energy crisis. However, the rapid construction of parks requires smooth planning processes and good cooperation with local communities, which is why joint discussions and information sharing are one of the main tasks of developers,” said Ulm.

Enefit Green has six wind farms in the planning phase in Estonia. This year, the company plans to make an investment decision to start the construction of the Sopi and Toots wind energy areas, where all the necessary planning work has been completed. The first of the new renewable power plants to be completed is the Purtse wind farm, which will start producing electricity at the beginning of next year.
