Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Wind Turbine Noise – Fact or Fiction?






Over recent years, the wind industry all over the world has had to endure a spate of protest against the construction of onshore (and offshore) wind farms. At first, the complaints were concerned with visual impact, but more recently wind turbine noise has also been a major source of complaints. Collectively, this level of opposition has been enough, in many cases, to completely thwart the development of wind farms in certain areas.

However, is there really any evidence to suggest noise, if indeed wind turbines produce any of any real significance, is a major problem? Survey after scientific survey on the matter has rejected the suggestion after prolonged and careful analysis.
