What is Windplanner?

Windplanner is a do-it-yourself web application for the planning and visualization of wind projects. It shows the visual impact on the environment in 2D, 3D and VR. You can view the project from any angle, in photorealistic images.



Scout locations anywhere in the world. View the local environment in Street View or in 3D-view with 3D buildings, trees and existing landmarks like turbines and power lines.



Design your wind energy proposal to suit your needs. Extremely fast & accurate. Adjust turbine properties like hub height and blade diameter. Collaborate in real time with your team members, advisors or suppliers.



Share, consult and liaise with residents, colleagues, authorities and decision makers. Create stunning animations or share in VR; real time and globally.

Amend until you get it right

Upload relevant geographic information such as constraints, ownership, wind speeds. Place turbines in configurations and create alternative layouts. Separate turbines using wake loss criteria, line and grid tools, and distance to residential properties. Easily view and share your results directly in Street View, Cycloramas or your own panoramic photographs. You’ll never miss an angle or viewpoint again.

Try out different settings

Shape your wind turbine in a photorealistic 3D environment. Try out different positions and variables such as day, night, shadow impact and wind direction. Adjust hub height, rotor diameter, turbine type and lighting. And immediately see the visual impact. Check out what it will look like from different viewpoints.

Seeing is believing…

Let all stakeholders experience the visual impact of a future wind turbine; with life-like scale as if it’s already built. Move turbines and let VR-users see your adjustments in real time. To support your story, summon VR-wearers to the Viewpoints you want to discuss. Across the globe and in real time.


Why and when Windplanner?

Creating support for wind energy projects is crucial. Windplanner facilitates the dialogue with stakeholders based on photorealistic images.

Visualizations can strengthen and speed up projects in each phase: from (pre-)feasibility to realization. A few examples: site evaluation, public consultation, environmental impact assessment, permit application, information events and communication during the construction.

'Windplanner is a great momentum in the work of planning and communication in windprojects in all stages of the development.'
'The planning process increasingly relies on digital communication and on-line consultation. Windplanner improves the public consultation process as it allows people to ‘see what it will look like’. Furthermore, Windplanner has given me an exceptionally powerful design tool to test and evaluate potential landscape and visual effects, which no other software can match.'
'Windplanner is interactive and that is unique. We are not looking at a dot on a map or a single static photograph, we can really walk around the turbines.'
'I work with various stakeholders: initiators, governments and residents. Every stakeholder has specific needs, and Windplanner allows me to use the same tool for all these different aspects. It is not only a helpful design tool but also an excellent presentation tool.'
