Wind Turbine Sound 2014
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 . . .

Wind Watcher’s Guide: Fun facts and photos
You can hardly travel on an Interstate Highway these days without seeing some part of a wind turbine behind transported from where it was assembled to it’s destination with dozens or hundreds of other wind turbines. The size of wind turbines and their towers has grown since the first ones were erected in the California hills in 1970s. Those turbines show us that generating electricity from the wind to save the environment of tomorrow has serious consequences for the environment . . .

U.K. petition to investigate wind turbine noise and revise measurement standards
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to set up an independent working party of acousticians and medical experts to fully explore the problems of wind turbine noise and the health consequences as ETSU-R-97, the measurement presently used, is invalid and does not protect our communities from unbearable noise pollution. Submitted by Julie Hauserman of Appleton Wiske Deadline to sign up by: 16 April 2010 http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/ETSU-R97Failings/ ETSU-R-97 is woefully out of date for measuring noise generated by current wind turbines . . .
