9-10 December 2014, Malmö, Sweden The second edition of EWEA’s technology workshop on wind turbine sound will take place from 9 o 10 December 2014 in in Malmö, Sweden. The 2014 EWEA sound workshop will have common threads running through the different sessions. These threads are: Amplitude modulation (AM/OAM) Low-frequency sounds (LFS) Sound levels Tones In relation with these threads, the workshop will cover the following topics: Human perception of sound National guidelines on noise Real-world sound measurements Wind farm . . .
“The Mendip Windfarm Song” is aimed at highlighting the proliferation of proposals for wind turbines across the West Country and furthermore the entire UK, disregarding the views of the local communities they are imposed upon. The song was penned after hearing of a proposed 66m turbine in the quiet village of Laverton, near Norton St Philip where the band’s HQ is based and news of the song has led to huge support for its release. A spokesman for the band . . .

Venue: Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow, Scotland Date: Monday 20th April to Thursday 23rd April 2015 This is the sixth of the biennial international conferences on Wind Turbine Noise. Many of us thought, when Geoff Leventhall opened his first conference in Berlin in 2005, that by 2015 all the noise issues with wind turbines would have been solved and the conferences would no longer be necessary. The opposite is true and last year’s conference, held unusually outside Europe, attracted nearly 200 . . .

Wind Aware Ireland will launch their new campaign and website on April 10th, 2014 from 10am at Buswells’ Hotel, Molesworth St., Dublin 2. We aim to hold policy makers to account to ensure that they act on evidence. We will provide a counter balance to business influence on the political process. Wind Aware Ireland are bringing together a group of experts and formidable presenters to urge reform of the Irish government’s unsustainable wind energy policies. Our objective is to ensure . . .
