All of the approvals necessary for the construction of the wind farm have been received.
Although wind energy offers undisputed benefits for the environment and has the strong support of large parts of the population, some citizens have concerns about the impact of wind energy on their immediate environment. Such issues include noise emissions caused by the rotor blades, the infrastructure, the impact on birds or the aesthetic impact on the environment. EnBW takes these concerns seriously and has received all of the necessary approvals for the construction of the Råmmarehemmet site.
Criticism regarding wind farms that are to be developed in areas of natural beauty in particular often includes the potential damage to tourism as an argument against the development on economic grounds. Studies on the impact of the onshore wind industry on the tourism sector clearly demonstrate that there is no general relationship between the development of wind energy and employment in tourism.
