Wind as a renewable energy source


The process of a typical wind project

View how a typical wind project evolves and which typical phases that our project managers take care of.



We start projects by screening relevant areas and bidding for larger projects.



Once a relevant area has been found, we start developing the project, which means, among other things, involving the local community.



As part of the development, we also seek financing by, among other things, making power sales agreements with larger companies or selling the project to an investor.



Once the financing and all approvals are in place, we start purchasing materials and building the project.


Grid connection

When the wind farm is completed, it will be connected to the electrical grid (network) so that the green power can flow to consumers.


Green electricity

Globally, our parent company European Energy offers green power to millions of households, and this comes from renewable energy projects in Europe. In North America, it will come from solar and wind farms.


Asset management and operations

Our asset management and operations services are designed to maximize value for all stakeholders, by effectively managing, operating, and maintaining wind turbines to ensure optimal yield from our wind farms.


The wind turbines EE North America builds, are about 492 – 820 feet high, or approximately 150 – 250 meters tall.

We limit the amount of time our turbines cast shadows on neighboring homes and the nearest urban communities to just 10 hours per year. We consider the impact that our turbines may have on the surrounding areas and ensure that the amount of shade generated by the turbines is minimized to ensure a positive impact on the community.

Housing in open ground

This applies to outdoor living areas up to 50 feet, or 15 meters, from residential.

42 dB (A) at 6 m/s
44 dB (A) at 8 m/s

What does this mean?

42 dB (A) at 6 m/s is the sound pressure level (in decibels) produced by a wind turbine when operating at a wind speed of 6 meters per second (m/s), as measured at 60 meters (m) from the base of the turbine. The (A) in dB (A) indicates that the sound level has been measured using the A-weighting filter, which adjusts the sound level to better reflect the sensitivity of the human ear to different frequencies. In general, a sound pressure level of 42 dB (A) at 6 m/s and 44 dB (A) at 8 m/s is considered relatively low and would likely not cause significant noise pollution.

Low-frequency noise

Roughly the same as the typical indoor noise level.

20 dB (A) low frequency at 6 and 8 m/s

Stricter noise requirements

Areas zoned/used for residential purposes – or village-like developments of at minimum 5 homes.

37 dB (A) at 6 m/s
39 dB (A) at 8 m/s
