Optimal location of wind turbines is a complex decision problem involving environmental, performance, societal and other parameter. This paper investigates the domain by describing WindturbinesPlanner: by providing machine learning models trained on various data sources, the platform can help to anticipate the potential location of future onshore wind turbines in Luxembourg, France, Belgium and Germany.
