‘Bad science’ behind the wind turbine noise guidelines
With contributions by Doug Bingham and Rod Greenough. Prepared for possible presentation to DECC, March 2013. The term ‘Bad Science’ is borrowed from the title of the book by Ben Goldacre (ISBN 978‐0‐00‐728487‐0). Although his book relates to medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, the lessons regarding bad science are equally applicable to the wind power industry. This presentation identifies the ‘Bad Science’ that is being used throughout the noise assessment process. Since the 1990s ‘Bad Science’ has been incrementally applied . . . Complete article »

Where ETSU Is Silent: Wind Turbine Noise Impact Assessment
Section 1: Executive Summary and Recommendations Sections 2 and 3 of this Report examine the de facto standard method, ETSU‐R‐97, used for assessing the likely noise nuisance from wind turbines that was produced in the mid‐1990s and is usually referred to as ‘ETSU’. The basis of the assessment is that background noise will mask the turbine noise and that both the background noise and turbine noise increase with increasing wind speed. To test whether or not the noise will be . . . Complete article »
