Onshore or offshore renewable energy helps to obtain energy in a sustainable manner. However, the deployment of both alternatives can damage the environment with different kind of impacts. For this reason, the place to construct these infrastructures must take into account all related impacts. In this way, Decision Support Systems (DSS) are useful tools. In this paper, a methodology to introduce a visual impact indicator into a DSS for the Environmental Impact Assessment of Offshore Renewable Energy (AMBEMAR) is shown.
