The Danish CORAL project looked at the perception of visual impacts from wind turbines by exploring neighbors’ annoyance of obstruction lights at the Danish Test Centre of Large Wind Turbines in Northern Jutland.

We conducted a study using online questionnaires and interviews to compare people’s perception and annoyance before and after the installation of a radar to control the lights.

The findings showed that the utilization of radar-controlled obstruction lights has the potential to mitigate people’s annoyance caused by visual impacts, whereas the perception of planning-related injustices may thwart this potential.
