Analysis of Wind Farm Performance in U.K. and Denmark

Unfortunately, detailed analysis of the relationship between age and performance gives a rather different picture for both the United Kingdom and Denmark with a significant decline in the average load factor of onshore wind farms adjusted for wind availability as they get older. An even more dramatic decline is observed for offshore wind farms . . . Complete article »

(AM noise is a blade swish noise at blade passing frequency, and is a characteristic of wind turbines.) This was in response to an earlier report for the DTI by the HMP, “The . . .
